No bake chocolate peanut butter slice

Seriously if there’s a better combo than peanut butter and chocolate, we don’t want to know.

This recipe is a MUST try and you will be forgiven for not sharing, trust us on this. Plus it’s NO BAKE! Hooray!

Using dates and a small amount of maple syrup means the slice is sweet but not full of white sugar. So it’s great for 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge members!
