This chocolate and coconut slice is all kinds of yum, with my inspiration being the good ol’ Coconut Rough.
As I'm lactose intolerant, I LOVE recreating old favourites. Although I still consider this slice a treat (as let's be honest, there are way better snacks out there like nuts, whole fruit and veggies!), it's suitable for a range of intolerances and allergies and less refined than one you may buy packaged or in a cafe. Unlike many raw desserts, it’s also not packed full with oil.
FUN FACT – Despite its name, the coconut is not a nut! Therefore it's safe to eat for those with tree nut allergies.
You’ll also note the recipe asks for “quality” dark chocolate. This is referring to a dark chocolate that is 70% or above. You’re welcome to use your own homemade chocolate instead but it will be more difficult to achieve that crunch.
It serves 18-20 which means you’ll have enough to freeze and defrost for later; or alternatively, halve the mixture.
Note: for allergies & intolerances, this slice is also naturally free from dairy, lactose and wheat.
