I LOVE making raw slices. They are so quick to whip up, nutritional and healthy! They are absolutely satisfying – made with whole food (real) ingredients, so 1 piece is usually more than enough!
I usually have an array of staples already on hand (cacao, coconut oil, dates, nuts etc), so I can make them whenever I feel like a sweet treat.
You can utilise what ever nuts and seeds you like in this recipe, below is what I used. (Think brazil nuts, pistachio, chia and so on…)
1 cup dates
1 & 1/2 cups nuts/seeds (almonds, raw cashews, pepitas & sunflower seeds)
1 tbsp raw honey
1 & 1/2 tbsp organic raw cacao powder
1/2 cup organic raw cacao powder
1/2 cup melted organic cold pressed coconut oil
2 tbsp raw honey
Blitz all of the slice ingredients (reserve 1/2 cup nuts/seeds) in a high powered food processor. Once combined and sticky, stir through the remaining nuts/seeds. This will give the slice a nice crunchy element.
Press into a lined loaf tin. Be sure to leave a little hanging over the sides so that the slice is easier to remove from the tin.
Place the slice in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Combine the topping ingredients in a bowl, stir until silky smooth and pour over the slice. Return to the fridge to set.
Cut into bite sized pieces.
This can be stored in the fridge and or, freezer in an airtight container.
