A divine combination of sweet cherries, coconut and chocolate in this raw, dairy and gluten free slice. Mix it up and use a combination of cherries and raspberries for added colour and flavour.
1 generous cup of fresh or frozen cherries (seeds removed). (Try 1/2 cherries & 1/2 raspberries)
1 cup organic coconut oil
1 cup of raw activated almonds
A pinch of sea salt
1/3 cup rice malt syrup (or similar liquid sugar)
1 cup organic coconut flakes
1/2 cup chia seeds
Combine the base ingredients in a food processor and roughly process only as this is quite a chunky slice. Place in a small baking dish which is lined with baking paper and smooth with a spatula. Leave enough paper so it is hanging over the edges as this can be used to remove the slice when set.
The top layer: Combine in a saucepan 1 tablespoon raw cacao, 1/2 cup coconut oil and 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Heat gently and stir. Remove from heat when melted and combined.
Place the slice into the freezer until set. Remove from the freezer and slice.
This slice can be eaten straight away or stored in the freezer in an airtight container. Enjoy!
