I am a sucker for anything sweet. I always have to have something in my fridge I can grab to enjoy for that sweet fix.
My chocolate nut log is another super fast treat to make that you can adjust to include what ever you have in your cupboard. This recipe is full of some great healthy fats and lots of chocolatey goodness from the raw cacao. I hope you enjoy making this the next time your sweet tooth calls!
Chocolate Nut Log
1/2 cup of raw cacao powder
1/2 cup of raw coconut oil
Few pinches of good quality pink salt
1 heaped tsp of peanut or almond butter
1/4 cup of rice malt syrup * see alternatives
Large handful of macadamia nuts and almonds
Handful of shredded coconut
Turn your oven on and toast the nuts and coconut until the coconut is slightly golden.
Keep an eye on it as it can burn fast. Should only take about 10 minutes.
Melt your coconut oil and mix in all the other ingredients including your nuts and coocnut together in a large bowl.
Line a small dish or tin (I use a loaf tin) with wax proof paper and pour your chocolate mix in making it even and level. Then set in the fridge for at least an hour.
Cut into small squares and keep in fridge.
I have also made this log using walnuts and brown rice puffs. I’ve even skipped the cacao & sweetener altogether and used carob powder instead. So feel free to play with this recipe and add your favourites. Just keep it healthy!
If you can’t find rice malt syrup then add any sweetener that you enjoy.
maybe 2 -3Tbs of maple syrup tasting as you go and add more or less as needed.
