Healthy Raw Chocolate Brittle

Ingredients

  • 6 tbs virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 4/5 tbsp raw cacao
  • Handful of frozen organic cherries (you could also use strawberries, blueberries or raspberries)
  • A handful of mixed nuts in broken pieces (I use walnuts and almonds, you could also use cashews, macadamias, hazelnuts etc)
  • 2-3 tbsp virgin maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp chopped dates (you could also use raisins or other dried fruit)
  • 1 tbsp crunchy peanut butter (almond butter would work really well here too) - this is optional.

Instructions

  1. Assemble the ingredients ready to work quickly - the chocolate can set quickly;
  2. In a microwavable dish, melt the coconut oil for one minute (or melt in a pan);
  3. In a bowl add the cacao, and then the melted coconut oil. Whisk until the cacao is blended into the oil, then roughly swirl through the nut butter if using;
  4. In two dishes, or one cake tin, roughly spread out evenly the remaining ingredients and then pour over the chocolate mixture;
  5. Place in the freezer for about twenty minutes, until set.
  6. This can be stored in the fridge/freezer for about a week in an airtight container. Just cut off a piece with a knife run under hot water.
