Nutritious Guilt Free Raw Chocolate Biscuit Cake!!

Nutritious Guilt Free Raw Chocolate Biscuit Cake!!

I was out having a cuppa with my hubby and kids last week and we naughtily ordered chocolate biscuit cake to share!  Which I adore!!  

I thought to myself wouldn’t it be great to create a raw version that was guilt free and actually nutritious.  I had also been racking my brain to come up with a little welcome back treat for my students that I had not made them before.  And so the idea of our Nutritious Guilt Free Raw Chocolate Biscuit Cake came about.   I tried to come up with a way to make the biscuit part completely raw but anything I tried didn’t give the crunch that is so needed for a yummy chocolate biscuit cake!!
This chocolate cake is gluten free, wheat free, refined sugar free, guilt free!! Yeh!!!

Ingredients:

Biscuit:

  • 120g Almonds
  • 2 Tablespoons of Melted Coconut oil
  • 2 Tablespoons of Pure Maple Syrup
  • Chocolate Cake

  • 180g Raw Chocolate or 180g 85% organic Dark chocolate(dark chocolate is a cheaper and easier way but I am a purest and a sucker for more work, I love raw where possible!!
  • 180g cashew nut butter
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 20g raisons
  • Optional : 3 drops of peppermint essential oil or more if you desire
  • Method:

    1. Preheat Oven 180degrees
    2. Ground the almonds, melt the coconut oil, mix together along with the maple syrup
    3. Place parchment paper on a baking tray and spread the mixture on top, press firmly down.
    4. Pop the tray into the oven for around 10 mins
    5. Once biscuit is cooked and crispy, set aside and let it cool down and harden.
    6. Melt the chocolate either raw or shop bought along with the coconut oil.
    7. Stir in cashew nut and combine well.
    8. Pop in peppermint essential oil if you wish. This will give an extra healthy hit and add the gorgeous taste of peppermint.
    9. Break up the biscuit and stir into melted cake mixture along with raisins.
    10. Line a tray or dish and pour out mixture
    11. Pop into the fridge, should be ready to consume within 30 minutes…. yum!!!!

    Enjoy!!
