I ADORE making healthy wholesome treats and in this house some treats are a big hit, some are not – this slice is a big hit!
For the slice:
1 cup pitted medjool dates
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup desiccated coconut
5 tbsp almond butter
1/4 cup nut milk
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp baking soda
For the chocolate topping:
3 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
Preheat the oven to 160°C, and grease or line a baking tray.
In a food processor, add the dates and cashews. Pulse a couple of times, until roughly chopped. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until well combined. Transfer the mixture in to the baking dish, then press down evenly.
Bake in the oven for around 18-20 minutes, or until it’s golden on top. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely.
To make the chocolate sauce, melt together the coconut oil and maple syrup over a very low heat. Add the cocoa and whisk until smooth. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly.
Drizzle the sauce over the slice. Place in the fridge to set. Delicious!
