Just be sure to keep these babies in the fridge otherwise they’ll melt due to the coconut oil…x
Chocolate Caramel Quinoa Slice
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon rice malt syrup
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
- In a bowl or cup, first put in the coconut oil, then rice malt syrup and lastly raw cacao powder and mix with a spoon until smooth and shiny.
- Take out the set slice from
the freezer and pour the raw chocolate into the center of the container, then quickly move the container around to evenly spread the chocolate.
1 cup quinoa puffs
5 Medjool dates (pitted)
1 tablespoons natural peanut butter
1 1⁄2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
1/4 cup warm water
- In a food processor put the dates and peanut butter. Blitz.
- Then, add water as needed to make the consistency thinner and smoother. I used the entire 1⁄4 cup.
- In a bowl, add the quinoa, coconut oil and the date mixture and mix.
- Put the mixture on top of the base and gently press down to make it flat and even.
- Put the container in the freezer to set.
1 cup almond meal
1 tablespoon coconut oil (melted)
3 tablespoons rice malt syrup
1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
- Get a decent piece of cling wrap, put over container and use as a non stick mould inside the container. Leave cling wrap hanging over the sides too pull out of mould after freezing.
- Put all ingredients into a food processor and blitz until combined. Texture should be thick and should stick together like a dough.
- Spread the thick dough evenly along the base of the container and set aside.
TIP: I made another batch of this raw chocolate, to make the chocolate layer thicker. Make one layer at a time. Put back into the freezer to set (approx 15mins). To remove, pull up the cling wrap. Sometimes you will need to use a knife to loosen up the sides of the container. Enjoy!
- Keep the slice in the fridge or freezer as the coconut oil will melt if kept out!
- I use a square 5.5in x 5.5in (14cm x 14cm) plastic sandwich container.
- There are 3 parts to this recipe. Allow time for freezing.
- You will also require cling wrap.
