Festive Mint Slice


This mint slice is easy to make despite all the ingredients (a lot of which double up). And best of all, there's no need to take up any more room in your oven during a busy holiday season - as this is entirely raw!


Ingredients:


Base

  • 1 cup macadamia nuts

  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut

  • 1 tbs cacao powder

  • 2 tbs coconut oil, melted

Mint Filling

  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, soaked in water overnight

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk

  • 10-12 drops mint oil

  • 1/2 - 1 tsp natural stevia


Topping

1/2 cup coconut oil

3 tbs cacao powder

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1/2 - 1 tsp natural stevia



Method:

  1. Line a 20cm square baking pan with baking paper. Place all of the ingredients for the base in a food processor. Blend until combined and to a consistency you like. Pour into the pan. Spread out so it evenly covers the base. Refrigerate until firm.

  2. Drain the macadamia nuts. Place all mint filling ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy. You can add more or less mint oil according to your taste. Pour over the base and refrigerate until firm.

  3. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan. Stir in the cacao powder, vanilla essence, and stevia. Mix thoroughly, then pour over the filling. Refrigerate until firm.

  4. To serve, remove from the fridge and cut into 20 squares.
