Cacao Nib Slice

This super-easy recipe will satisfy your sweet cravings, but without the guilt!

1 cup pitted medjool dates

1 cup sultanas

1/2 extra virgin coconut oil

1/2 cup desiccated coconut

1/2 cup raw cacao powder

1/2 cup cacao nibs


Place all ingredients except cacao nibs into a food processor. Process until well combined and the mixture clumps into a large ball. 

Add cacao nibs and pulse until just combined.

Tip into a lined tray and firmly press into desired shape.

Place in the fridge for twenty minutes until it starts to firm up.  Take it out and cut into desired sizes. Put back in the fridge for further firming after surreptitiously eating a couple - make sure no one sees!

Enjoy with friends and family for a guilt-free holiday treat.
