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!
A decadent and delicious healthy raw and frozen treat for the chocolate lovers. A smooth and sweet treat with chunks of nuts, free of gluten, dairy and processed sugar. Filled with healthy fats, this is a snack that can be kept in the freezer and eaten when something sweet is desired. The healthy fats come from avocados, nuts and coconut oil which are whole foods, and this slice is packed with nutritious ingredients including vitamins, minerals, fibre and anti-oxidants.
A food processor is a must to make this delight. Place all of the ingredients in the bowl with the mixer blade and process. Simple. Sometimes the medjool dates can get stuck so it is a good idea to give them a few pulses first to chop them up a bit and then add in the nuts and do the same. This recipe has the addition of a Superfood powder and l like the Loving Earth blend but you can easily replace it with your own favourite.
3 cups of nuts (I like to use the harder nuts being almond, walnut or brazil. For this recipe l used all raw activated almonds but you can use a mixture)
1 1/2 cups of coconut flakes (or use shredded or dessicated coconut)
1/4 cup raw honey
2 tablespoons raw cacao
Have a taste test now and then put the slice into a baking dish lined with baking paper. I made the first batches without the baking paper and just greased the dish but the slice was a but tricky to get out of the pan so l would advise using the paper.
I hope you enjoy this delicious treat which is made with real ingredients and free of so many of the nasty chemicals we are seeing in food today. As a chocolate lover l really enjoyed creating this recipe and hope you share it with your friends and have a great time making and eating it.
