07 Aug Healthy, Raw and Delicious- Chocolate Coco Mint Bars


YUM!!! This delicious recipe is from the lovely Emily from This Rawsome Vegan Life. She makes THE most amazing raw, vegan, healthy and more importantly delicious recipes. I love that these bars are so simple to make!!


Chocolate layer:
1 cup walnuts
1 cup dates
1 tablespoon cacao powder

Coco mint layer:
2 cups dried coconut flakes
1 tablespoon coconut nectar (optional)
1-5 drops peppermint oil, as desired

To make the chocolate layer: put the walnuts in a food processor and process until they turn into a powdery consistency. Add the dates and process until it all begins to get sticky. Add the cacao powder until fully incorporated. Press half this mixture into the bottom of a small lined bread pan and put in the fridge.

To make the coco mint layer: put everything in the food processor and process until the dried coconut flakes turn into a crumbly buttery-like mixture; this can take a few minutes, so be patient. Press this mixture onto your first chocolate layer. Refrigerate for until it’s solid. Add the remaining half of the chocolate mixture on top and press down evenly. Refrigerate until solid. Sprinkle with coconut flakes if you like. Slice and serve!
