Dr.Libby Bountylicious Slice

Ingredients:

  • 8 medjool dates, pitted
  • 3 cups coconut, desiccated
  • 3/4 cup Coconut Oil, in liquid form
  • 1 cup cashew meal (blended cashew nuts)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 pinch salt

Topping: (optional)

  • 100g Cacao Butter, melted
  • 30g cacao powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup natural maple syrup/honey/ your sweetener choice

Method:

  • Place all the ingredients for the base into a blender, do not over blend, the mixture should be slightly sticky
  • Line a 20×20 cm tin with grease-proof paper. Spoon the mixture into the tin and spread it out evenly. Place in freezer for about 10 minutes.
Chocolate Topping
  • Slowly melt the butter over low-heat.
  • Place all the ingredients in the pot and mix until smooth
  • Spread over the chilled base, then set for 10 minutes in the fridge

This is a treat! When you are needing that pick me up or feeling like a something sweet this is a great recipe due to the satiety effects of the coconut and cashew. The good fats contained in both these ingredients mean you will be left feeling satisfied and nourished.

Perfect with a cup of Peppermint tea or shared with good friends. xx
