Base Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup cashews, unsalted and unroasted
  • 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, softened or melted

Caramel Peanut Filling:

  • 1/4 cup maple butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, softened or melted
  • 1/2 cup peanuts, unsalted
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Chocolate Coating:

  • 1/2 cup melted cacao butter
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder, unsweetened
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Yield: 12 bars


1. Pulse the cashews in a food processor until fine crumbles form (Image 1).
2. Add almond and coconut flour, and pulse again for a couple of seconds until combined (Image 2).
3. Add maple syrup and coconut oil, and pulse again until it starts to stick together but is still crumbly (Image 3).
4. Press crust into silicone molds, and transfer to freezer (Image 4).
5. While crust sets in the freezer, melt maple butter, maple syrup and coconut oil in a saucepan on low heat. Set aside to cool for several minutes (Image 5).

6. Add the maple butter mixture to a shaker, and shake well. It will immediately thicken into a caramel consistency (Image 1).
7. Pour the mixture into a bowl, and stir in the peanuts and salt (Image 2).
8. Take out the set crust from the freezer, and spread the peanut filling on top (Image 3). Store in the freezer overnight until maple butter mixture is firm.
9. Melt the cacao butter in a saucepan on low heat (Image 4).
10. Add the cacao powder, maple syrup and vanilla extract and stir until smooth. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes (Image 5).
11. Dip each bar into the chocolate mixture using a fork until each bar is completely coated. The chocolate will almost immediately set. Transfer back to the freezer for five minutes or until ready to serve.
