Raw Cookies and Cream Slice


by Nicky Skinner June 29, 2018

Is there anything better than cookies and cream? Maybe chocolate cookies and cream!

I was feeling creative and this slice just kind of came into being, but I'm not sorry because it really works!  This raw decadent slice is smooth and creamy with a delightful crunch from the cacao nibs.

You can substitute any nut butter, for example, coconut butter for a Bounty Bar feel or peanut butter if you want a more Snickers bar taste!

Just make sure you cut this slice into small pieces so you don't feel bad going back for seconds ;)

 

Makes: 1 loaf tin sized slice

Time: 20 mins make, 40 mins chill time

 

INGREDIENTS:

Bottom 'Cream' layer:

  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 Tbsp rice malt syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Top 'Chocolate Cookie' layer:

  • 10 medjool dates (soaked in boiling water for 20 mins)
  • 3/4 cup cashew butter (or almond butter)
  • 2 Tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs (or chopped dark chocolate)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. Pour enough boiling water over the dates to just cover them, leave for 20 mins.
  3. In a food processor add almond meal, coconut, walnuts, and cinnamon, then process until combined.
  4. With the blade running, pour in melted coconut oil and rice malt syrup.
  5. Press mixture into the lined tin and transfer to the freezer.
  6. Clean food processor bowl and then add softened dates, cashew butter, cacao powder and melted coconut oil, and mix until silky smooth (you may need to step blade and use a spatula to help the mixture combine).
  7. Remove blade and mix through cacao nibs.
  8. Remove slice from freezer and spread chocolate cookie layer on top of 'cream' layer. Press down well and return to the freezer for 40 minutes or until firm to the touch.

Slice into desired bite sized pieces and enjoy! Store the slice in the fridge for a week. Freezes well.

Lolly Cake
Lolly Cake

by Nicky Skinner August 27, 2018

I don't know about you, but lolly cake was always the slice I gravitated towards as a kid and teen, but when I became more health conscious and realised that malt biscuits, condensed milk and Eskimo lollies were less than nourishing, I tried to make better choices. But the other day I decided nobody should have to miss out and decided to healthify it.

Like the majority of my recipes, they are many easy substitutions such as a different nut butter, nut or dried fruit. It's adaptable to your own tastes and I've tried it with chopped dates, dried blueberries and walnuts and it was fabulous!

Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Featuring my favourite oats and banana, I had a hankering for something chewy and substantial with my morning cuppa the other day, so I whipped up these Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

I adapted a lactation cookie recipe I made on repeat a few months ago when Hope was born. Pulled out the brewers’ yeast and flax meal and added some ground chia and almond butter for healthy fats.

Chocolate Peanut Protein Bites
Chocolate Peanut Protein Bites

by Nicky Skinner July 13, 2018

I whipped up these protein-packed bites using NuZest Chocolate Clean Lean protein powder, but you can use any kind of protein powder you like.

As you can see, my chocolate coating skills leave a lot to be desired, and I've since had recommended to insert a toothpick and roll the bite in the chocolate to get an even coverage all around. Try that and let me know how you go.
