So quick and simple but soooo delicious. It’ll be gone before you know it! The kids had a blast mixing the nougat and sprinkling the peanuts.


  1. 1/4 cup natural organic peanut butter
  2. 1 cup vanilla whey protein powder (I used Kaizen)
  3. 1/4 cup organic honey


  1. 1/2 cup pitted dates/raisins
  2. Boiling water (enough to cover the dates/raisins) – reserve 2 Tbsp water for use


  1. 1/2 to 1 cup salted peanuts
  2. 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  3. 1 tblsp coconut oil


  1. Line your 8×8 glass dish with parchment paper
  2. Put the dates/raisins into a bowl
  3. Pour enough boiling water over the dates/raisins to cover. Let it soften
  4. Mix together nougat ingredients in a second bowl
  5. Press into the bottom of your prepared dish
  6. Blend 2 Tbsp of date/raisin water with the dates/raisins until smooth
  7. Spread the caramel mixture over the nougat
  8. Sprinkle the chopped peanuts on top
  9. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil on the stove in a small pot
  10. Drizzle the chocolate on top and spread by leaning the dish from side to side
  11. Chill in the freezer for at least 15 minutes
  12. Grab either side of the parchment paper and take everything out of the dish and put it on a cutting board
  13. Cut into bars and store in an airtight container in the freezer (they will stay soft)

    They are so yummy that I scoop the nougat and eat it like that when I don't want to wait for the chocolate to harden!


    Great recipe. Next time you make it, you should take some pictures of the process. Most pictures always make an instructable better.

    Thank you so much for the advice. Newbie! I've started to take photos of the preparation of my recipes now.
