Rawtella Slice

By Monday, September 30, 2013 , , , , , , ,

This ultra decadent slice of full of protein from the hazelnuts and buckwheat, amazing antioxidants and iron from the cacao, and a huge serving of ultra good for you coconut oil. Essentially this is like a beauty treatment in rich chocolately form, and it's so easy to make, too.

Makes 12 squares

You will need:

1 cup (170g) raw hazelnuts
1/2 cup (90g) coconut oil
1/2 cup (40g) raw cacao powder
2 tbsp mesquite powder (or more maple syrup)
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup (40g) raw buckwheat groats

For the icing:
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
1/2 tbsp mesquite powder (or more maple syrup)
1/2 tbsp maple syrup

To make the slice, add the raw buckwheat groats to the food processor and pulse until broken up slightly, but not powdery. Remove from the food processor and set aside, and add the hazelnuts to a food processor and process until it makes a chunky texture. Add the coconut oil, cacao powder, mesquite powder and maple syrup and process until combined, leaving it slightly gritty for added crunch. Add the broken up buckwheat groats and stir in with a spoon until well combined. Line a small square baking tray with greaseproof paper and spread the mixture evenly into the tray, smoothing it over so it is level. Place in the freezer to set. Meanwhile, make the icing by combining the coconut oil, cacao powder, mesquite powder and maple syrup in a small glass bowl. Fill a larger bowl with boiling water, and sit the small glass bowl into it, making sure no water touches the ingredients. Stir well to remove any lumps, allowing the coconut oil to melt and all the ingredients to combine, then remove the slice from the freezer and drizzle the icing evenly over the slice. Allow to set then cut into squares and store in the freezer for a deliciously decadent treat.
