1 cup coconut oil - melted
2 heaped tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp cacao powder
2 tbsp carob powder
1 heaped tbsp ground flax
1 cup dates - soaked for 1 hour
2 pinches Himalayan rock salt
3 tbsp goji berries
handful of walnuts
Start by melting the coconut oil on low heat in a bain marie, once melted, stir in the peanut butter and stir until all combined and melted together. Rinse the pre soaked dates and pop into your blender, adding the cacao and carob powder, flax and salt, and then blend..
Now, the maiden tells me that she intended for this recipe to be chocolate fudge, but when she went to prepare her dates and blend them up in the blender, she realised she hadn't soaked them for long enough and they were too hard to blend. So, determined not to give up on her chocolate creation, she put her creativity in the hands of the universe to see what would happen, and, oh my word did she end up creating such a delight!
If you find yourself in the same sticky date situation, I'll fill you in with what the maiden tells me is how she went on to create these choccy delights..
Transfer the date and cacao mix into a large bowl and stir everything up with a trusty wooden spoon, the mix will be sticky, but keep on stirring, and then pop in the gojis. Stir some more and then, with a masher, mash the mix until the dates are softened a little, but still firm enough to give a good texture, and why not thrown in a little of your own initiative too..being as creative as you like..whilst also not forgetting to lick your spoon every now and again ;)
Once the mix is all mixed, pour over the melted coconut oil and peanut butter combo and mix until all combined, then sprinkle some chopped walnuts into your preferred moulds, and then spread the choccy mix evenly over the top. Leave to set in the fridge for a couple of hours..and enjoy!
