Today I found myself without any chocolate in the house on World Chocolate Day!! Luckily I had the time to create a chocolatey, delicious and healthy treat with some ingredients in my cupboard. This is ideal for the 3pm sweet fix, for morning tea or as a snack. Perfect with a cup of tea.
You will need:
1/3 cup raw buckwheat
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup almonds chopped
1/3 cup pepitas
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup cacao nibs handful of dried fruit eg, goji berries, raspberries, cranberries
1 dessert spoon of cacao powder
1 dessert spoon of organic maple syrup (if you want more sweetness)
4 heaped dessert spoons of coconut oil
What to do:
1. Mix all dry ingredients together along with the maple syrup.
2. Melt the coconut oil then add it to the dry ingredients. Mix together.
3. Spoon mixture into cupcake paper cases or a silicon muffin tray.
4. Place in the fridge for at least 15 minutes to set. Enjoy!
This recipe can easily be made without the almonds for a nut free version. If you don’t have all of these ingredients, substitute and create your own version! The coconut oil is key in holding it all together. I’d love to hear what you put in your own chocolate crackle recipe, leave a comment below. I also think this treat is best enjoyed in winter as it would melt very quickly in summer.
