Raw Mint Slice Bounties

Raw chocolate ingredients

    • 2.5 Tbs Cacao powder x2
    • 1 Tbs rice malt syrup or maple syrup x2
  • 2 Tbs melted coconut oil x2

Coconut filling ingredients

    • ½ cup dessicated coconut
    • 1Tbs maple or rice malt syrup, or 1/4 tsp vanilla stevia drops
    • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 2-4 drops peppermint essential oil

Directions

  1. Combine 1 batch of chocolate ingredients in a small pouring jug and stir vigourously with a spoon or spatula. Evenly pour into individual silicone muffin moulds, about 0.4cm deep. Place in freezer for 3 minutes. You want them to almost be set, but not completely.
  2. In a small blender combine coconut filling ingredients just to bring it together (about 5-10 seconds). Do not sweat it if you do not have a blender – just combine in a bowl with a spoon. The blender just helps to break down the strands a little which helps with assembly.
  3. Place small tsps of coconut mixture onto each chocolate mould and press down firmly with finger or small teaspoon.
  4. Mix second chocolate batch and pour over the top of each one. Freeze for a further 15-20 minutes and pop out individually. Keep in fridge or freezer when not being eating.

A little bit more info…

Raw coconut chocolate has done its dash in my kitchen. When it first came about I made it every week. My family and friends loved it and couldn’t believe how delicious, yet fast it is to make.

So you can imagine I was kind of sick of this raw treat after making it 50 times and many different ways. But this recipe serves a purpose and that purpose is to feed those chocolate cravings when you urgently need it – and yes, chocolate is a legitimate emergency sometimes!

There are so many ways you can jazz up this 3-ingredient treat. Some of those I have made include adding peanut butter for Raw ‘Reece’s peanut butter cups’, or dried fruit and nut for a crunchy, texture filled slab of chocolate (although you should avoid dried fruit on any gut healing protocol or with fructose malabsorption).

When I made this, I was feeling like a bounty… and then I also thought how good mint chocolate was. So why not combine the two? These raw mint slice bounties are super easy and everyone will love them.
