Healthy Easter Treat- raw cacao and mint nibbles

You’ll love this delicious raw cacao treat – I adapted from Wholefood Simply (a great website with amazing recipes)

I’ve just substituted the almond butter for a combination of almond, coconut and cacao spread made by Mayver’s and Natural’s (by Melrose) ABC spread – which is almonds, brazil and cashew nuts. That is mainly because I didn’t have any pure almond butter in my cupboard. I also made the mix much thinner, so the end result is more like a big piece of chocolate rather than a slice or brownie, which kind of suits the Easter theme a bit more 🙂

I also didn’t use the desiccated coconut –  instead I used organic coconut chips (by Spiral foods) and blitz it into smaller pieces in the Thermomix/blender

I did think about rolling it into balls (like little Easter eggs) – you could do this with just the icing and a small amount of the “slice” mix – bit like a healthy Malteser…

hope you get messy and have fun making them! Would love to see your finished versions – Katie xx
