Coconut Centre: 2 1/2 Cups shredded coconut 1 Tbsp maple syrup 2 1/2 Tbsp rice malt syrup 2 Tbsp almond milk
Chocolate Layer: 3 Tbsp soft coconut oil 2 Tbsp rice malt syrup 1 1/2 Tbsp cacao powder 1/2 Tbsp almond butter
Method: Mix all the ingredients for the coconut centre in a food processor till it becomes a sticky mixture.
Press the mixture into the bottom of a baking paper lines pan. This should be around 2cm thick.
Put in the freezer for half an hour.
Then mix all the chocolate ingredients in a small bowl and mash with a fork till it comes a smooth paste. If you like you can melt all the ingredients over a low heat saucepan but the chocolate won’t turn out as soft.
Then apply this paste on top of the frozen coconut mixture and put back in the freezer for half an hour.
Then slice up and enjoy.
If you don’t eat them all in one hit – keep in the freezer so they stay nice and firm.
*Just a little note: Smoothing out the chocolate paste can be a bit tedious as it won’t stick to the coconut straight away, but be patient and take care.
