Caocao mint slice

This is the ultimate sweet treat – and it’s good for you! (Well kind of…). Inspired by Simply Wholefoods, I have my own take on this delicious and nutritious recipe. I’ve made this for my students at yoga, so now you can make it at home. Enjoy 🙂

Ingredients – the base:

2 cups shredded coconut

1 cup almond meal

4 tablespoons of caocao

4 tablespoons of ABC spread (Almonds, Brazil nuts and cashews)

2 tablespoons of honey

2 tablespoons of coconut oil

1 teaspoon natural peppermint extract

pinch of sea salt

 

Ingredients – icing:

6 tablespoons of caocao powder

4 tablespooons of coconut oil (as a liquid)

2 tablespoons of maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

Method:

Line a baking tray with baking paper

Then place ingredients into your Thermomoix or food processor and blend to a crumb mixture

Press the mix into the tray (i use a rolling pin or glass bottle with a sheet of baking paper on top)

Then work on the icing – put all ingredients into Thermy or food processor and whiz until all combined and look like melted chocolate (yum!)

And then use a knife to spread over base. Then refrigerate. Then slice. Then eat…
