Guilt Free Rocky Road Recipe

 

The Perfect Healthy Indulgence 

This healthy take on rocky road courtesy of nutrition guru Jessica Sepel looks and tastes incredible! Sweetened with natural medjool dates, it’s refined-sugar free and full of healthy fats, making it a satiating yet decadent treat. Get creative with the additions too – white mulberries, goji berries, coconut or your favourite nuts and seeds will taste deeeeeelish!

 

Makes: 9 slices

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 5-6 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free granola or puffed brown rice
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup mixed raw nuts, chopped (I used hazelnut and pistachios)
  • 1/4 cup goji berries

 

Method:

  1. Add coconut oil, cacao powder, cinnamon, sea salt and dates to a food processor. Process until smooth.
  2. In a large bowl, combine granola/puffed brown rice, coconut, mixed nuts and goji berries. Pour over cacao-coconut mixture and stir to combine.
