You will need:
Makes 8 slices
1 cup almonds
1 large tbs coconut oil
1 1/2 cup dates
2 - 3 tbs maple or agave
3 tbs 100 raw organic cacao
To make: Blitz the dates and the almonds until broken up and mixed together. This will take a while, and you need a pretty good food processor to achieve this.
When you have the right texture (I like mine with quite large pieces of nuts in) add a tbs of honey, a tbs cacao and give another few pulses so it combines. It should resemble chocolatey stcky mussily at this stage.
Press into a lined small tin with a push up base. I use a small 6 x6 " square tin. Pop in the fridge
in a small non stick pan melt the coconut oil, and then mix in 2 tbs maple and 2 tbs of cacao until you get a glossy paste. It will be fairly runny at this stage. Leave to cool for 5 minutes, then pour over the base and smooth into the corners before popping it back in the fringe.
Leave for 30 minutes then cut into squares of 8.
Seriously, these are incredible. So put the kettle on and sit back with a cup of green tea and a slice of heaven..
