Chocolate & Peanut Crackle Slice

This Chocolate & Peanut Crackle Slice was another request from Mac. I’ve mentioned before he finds recipes he likes the look of and sends them to me and as a challenge I turn them into a healthy, nourishing dish, snack or dessert. Challenge excepted!

The original recipe for this was awful. I couldn’t even tell you what half the ingredients were, which means we stay away from them. 

This slice is now soul food. It’s healthy, gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, raw, vegan, kid friendly and delicious. 

If you have any old favourite recipes you would like even healthier, comment below and leave it with me.

Enjoy.
