So there I was tweaking a few recipes when a Black Betty Bam customer pings out of the blue on Facebook and shares this great story – and recipe! Thanks Cathy Mueller!
“Hi there, I just wanted to let you know I have developed a little recipe using your lovely Black Betty Spread. It’s a “Black Betty, Peanut and Date slice and it’s delicious and super nutritious. Feel free to share with your customers. The Black Betty adds a kick of salty Umami flavour like a salted caramel taste. I love it and so does the family. My daughter Jordon is a naturopath and herbalist and has been promoting on her Instagram page for you too. It’s The Herbology Lab.”
Black Betty, peanut and date slice
Hi there, I just wanted to let you know I have developed a little recipe using your lovely Black Betty Spread. It’s a Black Betty, Peanut and Date slice and it’s delicious and super nutritious. – Cathy Meuller.
200 grams whole peanuts ( I used unshelled)
200 grams pitted dates
1 Tbs Black Betty Bam
1 Tbs tahini paste
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 heaped tsp cinnamon
1 Tbs coconut oil
50 grams pepitas
- Place everything apart from the pepitas into Thermomix/ blender and chop for 20 secs or so speed 5, until it starts coming together as a sticky consistency.
- Add pepitas and mix for 10 seconds on speed 3 to combine well.
- Spread into small slice tin and press down with back of spoon.
- Refrigerate for 20 mins. Once firm, turn out slice into bars.
Note: Can also be rolled into balls and rolled in coconut.
