Easy Vegan & Gluten Free Chocolate Bites

February 28, 2017

These simple little squares of yumminess went down pretty well at February's candlelit flow evening.

They're super simple to make and use just 5 basic ingredients. So, here is the recipe for you to have a go at whipping up your own batch!

 

 

 

Ingredients:

 

90g Desiccated Coconut
75g Cashew Nuts
250g Pitted Soft Dates
100g Dark Chocolate

4 tsp Coconut Oil

 

 

 

Method:

 

1. Place the coconut and cashew nuts in a food processor and whizz until finely chopped. Add the dates and whizz to make a coarse paste.

2. Spread the mixture out on a baking tray lined with a sheet of baking parchment.  Place another sheet of baking parchment on top and squish the mixture down to make a flat layer. Place in the fridge.

3. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil or butter together in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Once melted, spread over the date mixture and return to the fridge until set.

 

4. Cut into bite size pieces and store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
