Welcome to my Christmas Recipe Countdown, where each day leading up to Christmas, I will be sharing recipes from some of my Friday Foodies, as well as a few from myself.
Be prepared for healthy, mouth watering recipes that will help you to cater for all your festive season parties, dinners and get togethers. Each recipe is gluten, dairy and refined sugar free.
On day 8 of my countdown, I am featuring Rawky Road by Amelia Harvey.
Amelia featured as my Friday Foodie back in June,
This is one of my favourite raw chocolate recipes because it’s super easy and ready to be eaten in under 20 minutes. You don’t need any fancy equipment and there is no cooking required! It makes the perfect home made healthy Christmas gift!
- 3/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 cup cacao
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 2/3 cup coconut flour (desiccated coconut works too)
- 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
- 1/2 cup dried goji berries
- 1/2 cup coconut flakes
- Himalayan salt
If your coconut oil is solid, pop the jar into hot water until it liquefies. Combine the coconut oil with the cacao, maple syrup and coconut flour to make your chocolate base. Stir through the nuts, goji berries and coconut flakes.
Pour the mixture into a small baking tray or plate lined with baking paper. Sprinkle your Rawky Road with a good pinch of salt and put it into the freezer to set – it’ll be ready in about 10 minutes. Break or cut it into chunks and keep it in the fridge.
Eat, share, and enjoy!
