Choc Almond & Coconut Slice (Gluten Free, Low Fodmap, Lactose Free, Clean Eating, Low Carb, Vegan)

This slice would have to be one of the best recipes I have come up with.  So simple, no bake and  it includes 3 of my favourite ingredients, chocolate, coconut and almonds, how can you not go wrong with those 3 ingredients.  Packed full of protein, fibre, healthy fats, antioxidants! And if you like bounty chocolate bars then you will love this.  You can mix this with any nuts if you prefer something else, macadamias would be yummy!  Added crunch with chopped almonds (or you could leave them out but really the slice is much better with the chunky almond pieces.  Go on and treat yourself 🙂

Choc Almond and Coconut Slice

Serves 12-16

1 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

1 1/4 cup almond meal

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

1 tsp cinnamon

2 Tbsp rice malt syrup or maple syrup (or leave out if you prefer)

200 grams dark chocolate (I love the Dark Ghana chocolate by whittakers)

1/2 cup roughly chopped roasted almonds

1 Tbsp coconut oil (extra)

1 Tbsp rice malt syrup or maple syrup (extra, optional)

 

Line an 8×8 inch baking dish with grease proof paper (makes it easier to lift out the and less cleaning up!).  In a bowl combine, coconut, almond meal, cinnamon, syrup and coconut oil and mix to combine.  Press into the pie dish and place in the freezer to chill (or fridge) while making the chocolate topping.  In a large glass bowl melt chocolate and extra coconut oil together in the microwave or over a saucepan of boiling water making sure the heat proof bowl doesnt touch the boiling water).   Take the slice base out the freezer and sprinkle the roughly chopped almonds over the top then pour over the melted chocolate and carefully spread out over the top.  Refridgerate for an hour to set the chocolate then slice into 12 to 16 pieces and enjoy!

(another option is adding a couple of tablespoons of chia seeds for extra health benefits in the almond, coconut mixture or add sultanas or dried cranberries if you can tolerate dried fruit.
