Mix and Make Chocolate Slice

This slice has saved me a few times this pregnancy.

I have had it for lunches with a smoothie on days when everything else made me sick.

I have packed it for snacks when we went to the city.

It has been delicious when everything else tasted, well, tasteless.

Best of all it is quick, easy and results in very little cleaning up. Exactly what I need in my current state!

When the fabulous team at Woolworths asked me if I could create a recipe using LSA (ground linseeds, sunflower seeds and almonds) as part of the Macro Guide to Goodness campaign I straight away thought of this one. It seemed to tick all of the boxes –

Simple – tick.

Few Ingredients – tick.

Full of nutritional goodness – tick.

And the most important box of all, delicious – tick.

For those of you who have not yet heard of the Macro Guide to Goodness, it is a site dedicated to offering easy solutions for enjoying good food and a healthy lifestyle. Best of all there is something over there for everyone.

I hope you enjoy the site and I hope you enjoy the slice. Be sure to let me know.


Mix and Make Chocolate Slice

  • 1 cup Macro LSA
  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1/3 cup cacao or cocoa
  • 5 tablespoons almond butter 
  • 4 tablespoons honey*
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil 
  1. Line a square 20cm tin with baking paper over hanging the sides for easy removal.
  2. Place the LSA, coconut and cacao or cocoa into a medium sized bowl and mix to combine.
  3. Place the almond butter, honey and coconut oil into a heat proof bowl and gently heat just enough to soften and combine.
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and combine.
  5. Press the mixture very firmly into your prepared tin. I press the mixture down with the back of a spoon and then cover with baking paper and press down again to ensure it is very firm.
  6. Place in the fridge to set.
  7. Slice. Serve. Enjoy.

* you can use rice malt syrup if you prefer.

    Are you based in the UK? Where can you buy the ingredients from?

    • Hi Melissa,
      I am in Australia so I don’t know if I can be much help. For me the ingredients I use are all readily available at the supermarket. I hope you can track them down easily enough.
      Thanks,
      Bianca

      I’m in the UK you can get all ingredients from the usual big supermarkets or holland & barratt. Coconut oil from H&B is the best though; 100% raw, extra virgin and fairtrade and a big jar.

    Yum yum yum am eating this from the bowl as I type! Didn’t have everything in the cupboard, so I subbed almond meal for lsa and peanut butter for almond butter and is still delicious! Nmom nmom nmom… stop, I’ve got to stop and pop it in the tin before it’s alllll gone 😉

    Made these last night and whilst they taste delicious (like coconut rough), mine are really crumbly! I added an extra tspn of coconut oil because the mix seemed quite dry and pressed down super hard. Any ideas?

    • The extra coconut oil could make them more crumbly once they are in the fridge, I would try them again with out the extra oil, perhaps use slightly less coconut if you find it too much. I hope this helps. x

    hi, ive made this twice now. First time was really good, whole family loved them and my 3yo enjoyed doing the mixing. Hardened up in the fridge and was so more-ish. Second time, i added dried cranberries to the mixture which gives a fruity twist (but added sugar from the dried fruit). A real guilt free treat for all to enjoy packed full of health. Took them to the beach yesterday but they melted..still we dipped the fingers in and scooped it up. Thanks for the recipe! James

    • YUM!! That sounds delicious! Thank you for the feedback. I am glad you enjoyed them. x

    Hello Bianca, I have just made this, it is still setting …the kids are flocking around the fridge in anticipation! I am reading your “how sweet it is” journal, and enjoying it so much! I certainly made the perfect choice of very hard to choose from books of yours. Thank you again, I am very appreciative of the lovely gift I have received. Xxx
    Hoping you had a thoughtful day today, a change being just the two of you for a bit…….oh how they grow too quickly! By the time we catch up with them……they are doing their own thing. Every day is precious! Xxx

    • You are spot on!!! It all just changes so fast!
      Rapt to hear that you like the book! Thank you for the feedback. xxx
