This healthy raw chocolate slice recipe is SO rich, delicious and such a simple nourishing, thing to make. They make a wonderful, easy after school snack or weekend sweet treat for those that can tolerate nuts (or a late night chocolate fix)!
Why are they so good?
The almonds provide mood and energy elevating proteins, minerals and fats. The coconut and oil are amazing for the brain, immune and metabolic health. This is a whole food treat that is very satisfying and tastes amazing!
Makes a 20 x 30cm tray (lined with baking paper)
300gram (2 ½ cups, packed) of almond meal(or 2 cups/300 gram of raw almonds ground up roughly in a food processor)
80gram (1 cup approx.) shredded or desiccated coconut
130gram (½ cup) nut butter (I like the ABC nut spread)
4 tablespoons of sweetener (rice malt syrup or 2 tablespoons of raw honey or maple syrup – adjust the amount to make these more, or less sweet to suit your taste)
100grams (½ cup) raw coconut oil
1 tablespoon of vanilla powder
1 tablespoon of coconut flour
100grams of 85% cocoa chocolate (the more cocoa, the less sugar, and a lovely, bitter chocolate flavour)
Remember to keep these in the fridge or freezer. As with any raw coconut oil based product, they’ll melt if not kept cold!
Low-fructose and dairy-free or vegan
Choose rice malt syrup for your sweetener for low fructose. Even though the 85% chocolate is very low in fructose, you may like to make some dairy-free raw chocolate for the top. Here is the recipe.
Swap the almonds for ground hazelnuts and use hazelnut butter for a match made in heaven.
