no bake peanut and oat slice

Ingredients:

1 cup smooth natural peanut butter

1/2 cup honey/maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste 1 3/4 cup plain quick oats

1/2 cup hazelnuts
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1/2 cup cranberries

1/4 cup dark choc chips

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pinch of salt

Method:

  1. In a large mixing bowl add peanut butter, honey/maple syrup and vanilla bean paste, whisk until smooth. If peanut butter is firm you can microwave it slightly to help the whisking process.
  2. Place a medium pan on medium low heat, toast the hazelnuts and coconut flakes until slightly golden. Once golden add them to the bowl with the wet ingredients.
  3. Add in the cranberries, choc chips, ground cinnamon & salt and mix well until all ingredients evenly coated.
  4. Line a 12X7 inch baking tray with baking paper. Pour in mixture and press in firmly. I like to use the bottom of a glass jar or cup to create a flat even surface.
  5. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.
  6. Once set, cut into desired sizes and keep in an airtight container in the fridge up to a week.

Tips & substitutes:

  • Other natural nut butters can be used such as cashew or hazelnut.
  • Other dried fruits such as dried apricots, sultanas or figs can substitute the cranberries.
