Today I want to share a super quick and easy raw vegan chocolate recipe I think you will love. It is my “go to” recipe whenever I’m craving chocolate. It is delicious and very satisfying, chewy and tastes a bit like coconut-rough. There’s something distinctly nostalgic about these beauties.
This recipe only has six ingredients and requires no cooking. You just need to make sure the coconut oil is in liquid form. If the oil is solid, you will need to heat it slightly either using a small pan over the stove or in the microwave.
I’ve made this a few times, already, using a variety of nuts and sweeteners, and they’ve all worked. Just keep in mind that you will get more fudgy texture when you use syrup or dates as opposed to sugar.
If you’re of the experimental mindset then you’ll love the recipe. It is quite foolproof so feel free to experiment with the sweetener/oat/nut component. Perhaps use desiccated coconut or quinoa flakes, instead of oats, or even a mixture of both. Or use cashews, macadamias or walnuts instead of almonds, or a mixture of your favourite nuts. The sky is the limit.
Nutty Vegan Choc Bites
- 1/2 cup cacao powder
- 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
- 1/4 cup of your favourite sweetener coconut sugar, coconut nectar, maple syrup, dates, stevia, Natvia, Norbu, etc
- 1 cup rolled oats*
- 1/2 cup raw almonds or your favourite nuts
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
Process the oats, almond, sweetener (maple syrup, coconut sugar or dates) and salt in food processor until crumbly.
Mix melted coconut oil with cacao powder. Add to the oat nut mixture and process again until combined.
Scoop chocolate mixture into silicone mini muffin mould and flatten the surface using the back of a teaspoon. Alternatively, you can also pour into a baking pan (if you use a pan, make sure to cut them into squares before cooling).
Pop in the fridge for at least 20 minutes to set.
You can really creative with this recipe: swap oats with desiccated coconut, rice puffs, or quinoa flakes and use your favourite nuts instead of almond.
