Chocolate Nut Cake

No introduction needed for this.  It's so yum that it's hard to stop at 1 piece....

Go for it! Oh, and did I mention there is no added sugar - ideal for those quitting sugar and wanting to watch their waistlines.

 

Base Ingredients & Method:

  • 1/2c dates
  • 1c activated* walnuts (or nuts of your choice)
  • 1/3c organic Coconut Magic coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/4c desiccated coconut

Place all ingredients in the blender & mix until finely chopped up.  Once the mixture resembles crumbs, press into a lined slice dish or cake tin.  Place into the fridge while you prepare the topping.

Tip: if the dates seem hard, soak them in boiling water for 5 minutes.  Discard the water and proceed with the recipe.  You'll also find this adds extra moisture to the base.

 

* To activate the nuts, soak them overnight in water, or for up to 24hrs. Rinse off, then they are read to use in the recipe. 

 

Topping Ingredients & Method:

  • 7 dates
  • 2 1/2TBS peanut butter (I buy this from the health food aisle in the supermarket as it has less sugar)
  • 3TBS coconut milk
  • 1TBS vanilla paste 
  • 4TBS Loving Earth cacao powder
  • 1/4c organic Coconut Magic coconut oil (melted)
  • 4TBS boiled water
Place all ingredients in the blender and mix until it's a chocolatey consistency.  If it's too dry, add a TBS or so extra of hot water.
 
Place on top of the base, then scatter coconut on top - and whatever else you choose.
 
Put back in the fridge for 1-2hrs before serving.
