RAW TREAT – Choc-Coconut Slice

It’s raw, vegan, gluten free, egg free too! and you can make this nut free if you like too!

Raw Baby!

When I made this I didn’t even measure it, and I took inspiration from another recipe online and I should mention it but I simply cannot, it’s a joke what they posted!

Hard to follow steps, extra ingredients not needed AND ingredients that are not even mentioned in the steps, so you’re left scratching your head as to what to do! I WAS LOSING MY MIND!

OKAY here it is, I’ve put measurements there but I just went mainly by eye, you want the dry ingredients to be crumbly then the wet allows them to combine.

ONCE you make it the first time you can then adjust more of what you like and less of others eg the next time I make it I may use less maple syrup for a more bitter chocolate taste.

I’m not even going to specify how many it makes as you will cut it as big or small as you like! I made double this batch and it made 30 fairly sizeable pieces as seen in the pic!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 cup dates pitted
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup organic maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract – optional
  • 1/3 cup cold pressed coconut oil

Chocolate “Ganache”

  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup

Let’s Cook!

  1. Soak dates for 5 mins in hot water (from the tap don’t get the bloody kettle out!)
  2. Meanwhile in a food processor, add in coconut, nuts, cacao powder, salt, blitz till crumbly
  3. Then add the wet ingredients, the drained dates, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and blitz till it comes together (if you need more wet ingredients because it’s too dry then add some or if it’s too wet then add more coconut!)
  4. Mixture should be mouldable, you will then press this flat into a baking paper lined tray/vessel of choice and place in the fridge.
  5. In the same processor (no! do not bother washing it) combine the fudge ingredients, cacao and maple syrup till like a chocolate sauce consistency. Pull that tray out of the fridge and pour on top in whatever fashion you like. I sprinkled mine with more coconut, (you get as fancy as you like ok!)
  6. Put the tray back in the fridge for at least an hour and voila slice and eat! Store in the fridge!
  7. Enjoy!
