Who doesn't love a good chocolate slice? Even better, one with healthy, vegan ingredients. This slice really doesn't need an introduction though...
Vegan Chocolate SliceAuthor: Minako Umehara - @365cleaneats
- 100g rolled oats
- 50g raw almonds
- 2 Tbsp. arrowroot powder or corn starch
- 4-5 Tbsp. coconut sugar
- 1/8 tsp pink salt
- 6 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
- 2 tsp almond butter or peanut butter
- 200ml coconut cream
- 180ml coconut oil
- 8 Tbsp. raw cacao powder
- 6 Tbsp. maple syrup or agave syrup
**Bitterness of raw cacao powder varies. Adjust the amount of the powder according to your preference.
Preheat oven at 180C.
Place all dry crust ingredients in a food processor. Process well until it reaches the consistency of flour.
Add the wet crust ingredients to the food processor and process until it becomes doughy. If it's too dry, add 1 tsp or more coconut oil.
Press the mixture into the lined or greased tin. Bake it for about 15-22 min or until golden brown. Let it cool.
While cooling the crust, melt the filling ingredients in a double boiler. (Keep the mixture under 46C). Mix well with a whisk.
Pour the filling over the crust, and chill in a freezer until it sets.
Take out from the mold and cut. You can eat it straight from freezer - yum!
