Saturday Afternoon Delight….
As I was sitting down to a cup of T2 Goregous Geisha this afternoon I really wanted something to munch on, so I headed to the freezer and much to my delight found a Tuppawear container filled of my homemade sugar free peppermint slice.!
And here is the recipe for you to try….
2 1/2 cups of almond meal
1/2 cup cacao powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup brown rice malt syrup
1/4 cup water
2 cups of shredded coconut
2 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp mint extract
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
Preheat the oven to 180 and line a 20cm baking tin with baking paper. Combine the almond meal, cacao and baking powder in a bowl. Whisk together the eggs, syrup, and water and then pour into the dry ingredients and mix well. Spoon the batter into the tin and bake for 20 minutes. Once cooked, set aside to cool.
Pulse the coconut with the water in a food processor until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs and then add the mint extract and mix well. Add the coconut oil and continue to pulse until combined. Press the mint flinging onto the cooled base and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Then gently melt and cacao butter and coconut oil in a pot and add the cacao powder. Pour over the top of the mint filling and freeze immediately. (this will stop it soaking into the mint :) ).
Once set, cut into squares and remove from the tin. Store in the fridge or freezer.
