Awesome Apricot Raw Cacao Slice

Heaven!  I L.O.V.E. love raw cacao, full of anti-oxidants and tastes divine, what’s not to love?  Last year I made this Cranberry Cacao Coconut Creation and this Cacao Coconut Pie, delicious even if I do say so myself!  Today I thought I’d make something similar but turn it into a slice…here’s what I came up with from what I had in my pantry.

  • 1/2 cup apricots
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • warm water
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • Chop dates and apricots finely and soak in a small bowl with just enough warm water to cover.
  • Place walnuts, shredded coconut and cacao into blender and process until finely ground.
  • Add the soaked dates and apricots, including liquid, to the blender along with the coconut oil and process until a sticky semi-firm mixture forms.
  • Spoon mixture into a baking tray….ooops, as you can see from above the tray I chose was a little to big, perhaps a smaller brownie tray or square cake tin would be ok.
  • Sprinkle some shredded coconut on top and press into tray with the back of your spoon.  Place in fridge or freezer for about an hour.
  • Slice and Serve!

Also makes a lovely gift to take to your next dinner party
