Raw Cacao & Coconut Squares
- 150g dessicated coconut
- 150g pitted soft dates
- 70g extra virgin coconut oil
- 75g toasted mixed seeds (pumpkin & sunflower)
- 45g raw cacao powder
- 45g ground almonds
- 45g almond butter (shelled version)
- 25g goji berries
A real easy plant-based treat. It has a moreish gooey texture from the fridge and seems so wickedly indulgent. As some of you have asked for more treats I'd thought we'll start with this one. So if your fingers are creeping towards the cookie jar then STOP and give these a go. If you're really longing for more indulgence drizzle some melted dark chocolate over and savour. We usually find one or two of these is enough to sate.
Our motto for the week here is "Choose Happy & Break the Rules - Life is too short not to". Have fun! We'll leave you with them, have a great week. By the way breaking the rules comes with a warning not to do anything stupid to break the law or injure anyone else!!
Whizz up the desiccated coconut and dates until you get a breadcrumb texture. Add in the rest of the ingredients and whizz until combined and sticky texture. When you squeeze the mixture it should clump together.
Press into a baking tin. Freeze for 15 minutes, remove and cut into 20 pieces. Refrigerate until ready to use. If you leave them at room temperature for too long they crumble and fall apart.
