Choc Crackle Slice (GF, DF)

This recipe conjuers up memories of eating chocolate (and not so nutritious) crackles, as a child. It is very rich, hence why I cut into bite size portions…perfect for that little go-to treat. I’m usually good after 2 small squares!

Eating wholesome, natural sweets – with good quality ingredients and good fats are going to nourish your body and leave you feeling satisfied, unlike their processed counterparts. This is real food, gluten and dairy free.

 

YOU WILL NEED:

slice
1 cup dates
1/4 cup organic coconut flakes (unsweetened)
1/4 cup almonds (soaked)
2 tbsp organic raw cacao powder
1 tbsp coconut oil (raw)
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 vanilla bean
1/4 cup cashews (roasted and lightly salted)

 

topping

1/2 cup coconut oil (raw)
1/2 cup organic raw cacao powder
1 tbsp maple syrup

Line a small square pan with baking paper.

Place all of the ingredients (except the cashews) in a high powered food processor and blitz until combined. Add the cashews and pulse a few times (you want the cashews to stay fairly chunky).

Press into the lined pan and refrigerate.

Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over a low heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the cacao powder and maple syrup.

Gently pour over your slice and place in the refrigerator immediately to set.

Cut into bite-sized squares.

Enjoy with an espresso!

*If you want this to be totally raw, add raw cashews instead of roasting.
