A delicious chocolate slice free from gluten, dairy and processed sugar, while also being incredibly nutritious.
This is a simple raw slice that l made using the food processor in just minutes. A taste test of the processed ingredients was delicious.
1 cup of organic almond meal (blanched)
1/4 cup rice malt syrup
1 cup organic shredded coconut
1/2 cup organic raw coconut oil
2 generous tablespoons of organic raw cacao
6 organic medjool dates (seeds removed)
1/2 cup flaked almonds
1/2 cup macadamia nuts
Place all of the ingredients in the food processor. (The nuts could be substituted for any other kind of nut you like)
Place the mixture into a baking dish lined with baking paper. Push it down with a spatula so there is a nice even layer of approximately 1 cm thick. Smooth the surface with the spatula.
Place in the freezer and when frozen cut into individual pieces. The slice freezers in about an hour and can be stored in an appropriate container in the freezer where you can just take a piece or two out as required.
Note: You can buy blanched and natural almond meal. I have been using natural almond meal in most of my recipes which is almond meal with the skin on. I have now switched to blanched almond meal as it is so much softer in my baking.
