Ingredients

  • 200g almonds
  • 300g dried unsulphured apricots
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 20g freeze-dried raspberries, crushed
  • 180g Divine Dark Chocolate with Raspberries
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

Method

1

Soak the dried apricots in boiling water for 10 mins, then drain. Line a dish or container with baking parchment (approx. 24cm x 16cm).

2

Blitz the almonds in a food processor until crumbly but not too fine. Add in the drained apricots, chia seeds and raw cacao powder and process until sticky and the mixture holds together.

3

Press the mixture firmly into the lined dish and smooth over the top. Top with the crushed freeze-dried raspberries.

4

Melt the chocolate and stir through the coconut oil until creamy. Pour over the freeze-dried raspberries and allow to set in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Slice once cool and keep in an airtight container for 3-5 days.
