Vegan Super Berry & Peanut Fudge Chocolate Bars

Vegan Super Berry & Peanut Fudge Chocolate Bars

Peanut butter, jam and chocolate are a winning combination so you can probably guess how delicious these no-bake bars are! They are gluten free, low FODMAP, refined sugar free and vegan.

We created this indulgent recipe in collaboration with one of our favourite food bloggers @nutritiouslynaughty (otherwise known as Ruth, check out more of her tasty chococlate recipes)

Ruth says: I infused the Super Berry tea in the chia jam layer and and it really enhances the sweetness of the raspberries. Working perfectly with the richness of the chocolate and the nutty peanut butter fudge.

  7. Pour the fudge mixture over the base layer and place back in the fridge for 1 hour
  8. Add the jam mixture to a blender and pulse 4 times to break down some of the chia seeds
  9. Spread the jam over the fudge layer and place back in the fridge for 2 hours

  11. Melt the cacao butter or coconut oil in a bowl over a pan of simmering water

  13. Cover a plate or chopping board with baking paper
