Slice of Coconut Heaven

by Collette White | November 10, 2013

I am excited to share this recipe with you all that I created last week. It was a HUGE hit and it was loved by all….my kids only disappointment was that they couldn’t take it to school as it has macadamia nuts in it….they made up for it though as it was the first thing they asked for when they walked in the door after school, even before taking their bags of their backs! Funny!

I hope you and your family and friends enjoy it also….

Ingredients

base

1 cup almond meal

10 medjool dates

1 tblspn chia seeds

1 tspn maca powder (optional)

1 tspn coconut oil 

top

1 cup macadamias

3 medjool dates

1 ½ cups desiccated coconut

2 tblspns maple syrup

1 tspn coconut oil

Method

Put all the ingredients for the base into a food processer and process for 1 minute. Use your fingers to push this mixture down firmly into a 20cm square lined cake tin to form the base 

Refrigerate for ½ an hour.

Meanwhile, place all the ingredients for the top into a clean food processer. Process for 1 ½ – 2 minutes until reasonably smooth.

Remove base from fridge and spread this top mixture evenly over the base until smooth (once again I used my fingers to do this).

Place in the freezer for ½ an hour then refrigerate until ready to cut and serve. 

Store leftover slice in an airtight container in the fridge.

Notes

Times may vary for the food processing steps depending on your processor.

You could sprinkle coconut or chopped macadamias over the top when serving.

Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
