All last week I was craving something sweet. It hasn’t helped I have been looking at Pure 2 Raw on a daily basis and drooling over their recipes- why does everything they make look so good?! I felt like I hardly had time to cook meals last week let alone bake, so I had to wait until the weekend to get in the kitchen properly.
Superfood Chocolate Crackles
This recipe is similar to Vegan Chocolate Spiders but I have added dried berries which make the recipe particularly sweet – without the need for sugar, agave nectar or stevia! And you know what else I did? I kept a note pad and paper near me when I was making the recipe, so there will be no more “approximate” measurements – gosh I’m getting professional.
What you need
50 grams of shredded coconut
2 heaped tablespoons of cacao
1 heaped tablespoon of flax meal
50 grams of dried berries – I used goji berry, blueberries, and cranberries
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
Optional – 2 teaspoons of peanut butter
Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl
Add in coconut oil
Cover a tray with grease proof paper and dollop mixture in small blobs – should make approximately 12
Leave to set in the fridge for one hour
F is allergic to nuts so I made half with peanut butter and a half without. Both taste good, however, the version without the peanut butter doesn’t stick together as well as it’s peanut butter counterpart. Don’t fear! Once frozen it will be exactly the same as the peanut butter version.
Superfood Chocolate Crackle with Chocolate and Peanut Butter Ice Cream
If you want to go all out, here is the dessert version – Trust me, you definitely want to go all out!
What you need
3 Tablespoons of Nushie’s Natural Ice Cream – Chocolate flavour
2 Teaspoons of organic peanut butter
Mash the ice cream and peanut butter together in a separate bowl
Make the mixture into a ball and place in a clean bowl
Add the chocolate crackle on top
Garnish with cacao powder
This is so good that I have had to limit myself to eating it once a week, otherwise, things could get a little out of hand!
