raw caramel peanut pie


This is one of those sickly, sweet, desserts that I just can’t get enough of. I know this may not be one of my healthiest treats, but sometimes your sweet tooth is just crying out for a slight sugar rush. The main thing about this delicious pie is that its sweetness is not coming from cane sugar. I always make sure that I at least use wholesome, natural ingredients in my recipes to provide you with way to indulge in something that may taste sinful, but lets you delve into it guilt free. With only a few ingredients, this sticky snack is so easy to and quick to make. Not only will it fill your tastebuds with a deliciously sweet flavour, but also give you that needed energy boost for when you’re craving that afternoon snack you so deserve. The other benefit is that this recipe only makes a small pie, with enough for you to sooth your sweet tooth, but without there being too much temptation left lurking in the fridge after you take a slice.

makes 1 small pie

ingredients

Base:
1/2 cup (45g) pecans
1/2 cup (45g) walnuts
1/4 cup (50g) dates
1/4 cup (40g) raisins
2 tbsp peanut butter

Middle:
4 heaped tbsp peanut butter

Caramel Top:
1/2 cup (100g) dates
2 tbsp peanut butter

 

method

1. Make the base by adding all of the base ingredients into a food processor, and blasting until all of the nuts have broken down and a shortbread like dough has formed. Scoop this out of the processor, and press into a small cake tin.
2. Spread the peanut butter layer over the base, until completely covered. You can use more if you want, depending on how much of a thick layer and peanutty taste you want.
3. Next, make the peanut caramel top by combining its ingredients in a food processor and blending until the dates have broken down. Spread this on top of the peanut butter, and to finish, sprinkle with some extra walnut pieces.
4. Place in the fridge and set for about 30 minutes. Then remove, slice, and indulge!
