Recipe:

No-Bake Coco-Nutty Slice

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups unsalted Nuts of choice
  • 1 cup Shredded Coconut
  • 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons Raw Honey, Pure Maple Syrup or Rice Malt Syrup (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Powder

  2. In a bowl, mix nuts and coconut with coconut oil, chosen sweetener and vanilla powder, combine well.
  3. Spread mixture onto a lined slice tray. Cover with a layer of baking paper and press down firmly to spread evenly, approximately 1/2 cm thick.
  4. Freeze for 2 hours or until firm. Cut into shapes approximately 4cm x 4cm and enjoy straight from the freezer.
  5. Store slice in freezer.

Serving Suggestions:

Make It Personal:

  • Add your own flavour combinations such as 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, orange or lemon zest, 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice or 1 teaspoon Carob or Cacao Powder.
  • Sweeteners such as Raw Honey and Pure Maple Syrup are optional if you prefer yours without. If leaving sweetener out we recommend adding an additional tablespoon of Extra Virgin Coconut Oil to help the slice to hold together well.
