Hand Made Raw Fruit & Nut Dark Chocolate

GF | V | RSF
 
Ingredients
4 tablespoons raw cacao powder.
4 tablespoons natural peanut or almond butter.
4 tablespoons coconut oil.
3 tablespoons raw honey or pure maple syrup.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
¼ cup sultanas.
¼ cup shredded coconut.
¼ cup roughly chopped salted macadamia nuts.

 

Method
Place a large glass or stainless-steel bowl over a saucepan of simmering water then add the cacao powder and coconut oil into the bowl and mix together. Add the honey, vanilla extract and peanut butter and mix together until all of the ingredients are melted and combined together (this should only take 2 minutes on a low heat.) Remove the bowl from the heat then add the sultanas, shredded coconut and macadamia nuts. Stir together until all of the ingredients are well combined and the chocolate is thick and glossy. Pour the chocolate into a shallow paper lined slice tray and freeze for an hour. Once the chocolate is set remove it from the tray and slice into long sticks or small squares with a sharp knife. Store in the freezer for up to 1 week. Makes a 20 x 20cm slice. Serve with fresh cherries and strawberries. 

 

  

 
BLUEBERRY & BLACKBERRY JAM
 
GF | V | RSF
 
Ingredients
2 cups (500gm) organic blueberries and blackberries.
3 tablespoons raw honey or maple syrup (you can substitute with stevia or monk fruit for zero sugar.)
1 tablespoon chia seeds.
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract.
100 ml water.

Method
Mix the chia seeds into the water for a couple of minutes until it thickens into a soft gel. Place the berries into a small pot then add the chia mixture.
Cook over a low heat until it starts to boil. Add the vanilla essence and honey, gently stirring together. Cook for a further 5 minutes until thick. I like to burst some of the blueberries with a fork so the delicious fresh juices seep into the sticky jam. Allow the jam to cool then transfer into a medium size sterilized jar.
Keep refrigerated for 1 week.
I also love to use this jam as a coulis. It’s super delicious poured over pancakes or topped over fresh fruit and yogurt or smoothie bowls.
