RAW energy Date, Pecan & Macadamia Slice

Raw Energy Date, Pecan & Macadamia Slice
As seen in HOLISTIC BLISS magazine

I love chocolate so I love creating healthy chocolate recipes! This raw slice is easy to make and absolutely delicious, it does not last long in our house at all!


Ingredients
½ cup Nui organic coconut flour
2 tablespoons organic Power Super Foods Maca/Cacao blend powder
1 cup mixed raw unsalted macadamias and pecans
¼ cup raw macadamia’s extra
¼ cup dates extra,( not soaked), chopped
¼ cup raw, unhulled tahini
¼ cup Niugini Organics raw organic coconut oil
1 teaspoon organic vanilla pod extract
1 &1/2 cups pitted dates, soaked overnight in a little water.

Method
Line a slice tray with baking paper.
Blitz the cup of raw nuts until crumb like texture.
Blend dates to make a paste.
Combine the tahini, coconut oil and date paste together in a large bowl.
Add in the coconut flour and maca blend powder, combine well.
Stir through the extra macadamia nuts and dates
Spread mixture out onto the lined tray, press down.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until really firm.
Cut into slices.
Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for firmness.

Notes
You could add raw agave, raw honey or even stevia for extra sweetness if desired.
Make it really chocolaty by increasing cacao powder and adding some drops of liquid chocolate stevia.
Great for a sweet, sugar free, raw snack, afternoon tea with the kids.

  7. I've just bought some powdered stevia, as I don't want the sugar in the occasional coffee I have. I can't stand the coffee fix without some sweetness, but I don't like the sugar. Keen to see how I can substitute it in recipes.

    1. Alicia I use powdered stevia heaps! You will find it in lots of my recipes on this blog :)
      The only things I find is that if it is a recipe that uses dark brown sugar for caramelising I use coconut sugar instead and if it is something that has very delicate flavours I might use xylitol or powdered monk fruit. I love the stevia drops too, have you come across them?
      Chocolate, vanilla, caramel - yum!!

    1. I love raw food but I have never done a raw food challenge, the issue of Holistic Bliss I mention in the post has lots of raw food recipes in it and an interview with a raw food guru :)

  9. Hi Rebecca,
    I saw your post on IBOT and resisted coming to look because I am currently on 6 weeks of sugar free (including dried fruit, so no dates), but when you commented over at Sustainable Suburbia I could resist no more!
    This slice looks absolutely delicious! I think I'll have to try it when my 6 weeks is over, though I can't imagine going back onto sugar in a big way now. I think the occasional dates will be okay :)

    1. haha! I have done a few sugar free challenges and juice cleanses myself so i know what you mean :)
      I do not use cane sugar hardly at all but use natural, healthy alternatives like stevia, monk fruit, coconut sugar, raw honey, dates, dried fruit etc xx
