Peanut Butter Slice

Calling all peanut butter fans!

Brenda-Janschek-Recipe-Peanut-Butter-Bites-2

I had an early Easter with my mum, brother, sister and our kids on the weekend.

One of my family members is dairy- free, so I wanted to make something suitable that was delicious, Easter-y and easy.

My theory is that anything made with peanut butter is going to taste sensational and make life better so off I went with my jar of Peanut Butter.

And now say hello to this Peanut Butter Slice! 

You guys! YOU HAVE NO IDEA!!!

Similar to a caramel slice, but with a whole new taste. 

I have to give credit for the peanut butter filling to my friend, Wholesome Cook, and her recipe for Peanut Butter and Buckwheat Fudge Bites from her amazing cookbook, The Wholesome Cook, and which she allowed me to blog some time ago. 

The slice is quite rich, so a little goes a long way. They are also quite filling, due to the good fats from the coconut oil, and protein from the peanut butter and nuts and oats.

I hope you love them!
