Raw Chocolate Haystacks Recipe from Raw & Simple

 Trying to keep to 100% raw ain't really that hard as long as you have chocolate......RIGHT. Now this past weekend I did make a tofu scramble with all the fixin's but I actually felt like I was doing something wrong even though it was all this vegan and tasted great. So wanting to get back to my raw state I need some desserts for the week, reading some new books that the wifey got I found this one and they reminded me of no-bake cookies which I love. I followed  this recipe exactly no subs or add-ins it was perfect. This book Raw & Simple by Judita Wignall is full of great recipes that I can't wait to try.

Chocolate Haystacks

2/3 cup cacao powder 

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup coconut oil melted 

1 tsp vanilla extract 

1/4 sea salt 

2 cups shredded coconut. 

This recipe is straight out of page 149 of her book. In my words just blend the first 5 ingredients and then add the coconut mix till well combined. Scope about a tbsp at a time on to parchment paper then place in the freezer for 30 min till they are firmed up and enjoy. There will more of her recipes to come.

The best part of the morning.

  1. Hello, just wondering about the coconut oil-is it measured in its solid or liquid form? Thanks!
