Raw Cacao Peanut Butter Slice

This no-bake slice is perfect for the chocolate and peanut butter lovers out there! How could you not love a chocolatey base covered in a smooth and creamy peanut butter topping?

It's boosted with protein to keep you feeling satisfied and the raw cacao gives it an antioxidant boost. I've kept the sugar content low (the peanut butter adds natural sweetness) and it's also gluten-free and grain-free. Keep it in the fridge or freezer for a post-workout snack or an after dinner treat!
