Nothing Naughty Coconut Rocky Road

Nothing Naughty Coconut Rocky Road

 

This delectable ‘nothing naughty coconut rocky road’ is a perfect low sugar sweet treat that will nip any cravings straight in the bud! So you can still indulge in a little REAL chocolate, without the guilt!
  • Rich in antioxidants and magnesium
  • Dairy & gluten free
  • Low in sugar – just 5 gms per 20 gm serve
  • High in natural plant proteins – thanks to the raw nuts and seeds
  • Rich in good fats thanks to the virgin coconut oil

What you’ll need…

  •  80 grams cocoa butter
  • 1/2 cup virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup quality cacao powder
  • 2 Tbsps rice malt syrup
  • 1/2 cup organic frozen raspberries
  • 2-3 fresh dates, roughly chopped – optional – personally I don’t add these, especially if you are trying to kick sugar
  • 1/3 cup goji berries
  • 1 cup toasted coconut flakes
  • 2 cups raw mixed nuts – brazil, almonds, macadamias, walnuts, pistachios – preferably organic or pesticide free
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tsp mixed spice, cinnamon  or nutmeg

How to make…

  • Melt cacao powder, cocoa butter, coconut oil and rice malt syrup over low heat in a small saucepan, stirring to combine
  • Add mixed nuts, dried figs / dates (if using), goji berries and toasted coconut flakes to a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon to combine
  • Lightly grease a rectangle cake tin with coconut oil and line with greaseproof paper
  • Add dry nut mix to the tin and spread evenly then top with the frozen raspberries
  • Pour melted ingredients over nut mix to coat evenly
  • Place in fridge to set and then remove when hard and cut into small squares or fingers approx 5 x 3cm
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Enjoy a slice of coconut rocky road with a cup of fresh herbal tea  – eg: green tea, fresh ginger & lemon grass, peppermint or chai made on almond or coconut milk….yum!

  5. HI Farah

    fresh dates should be eaten in moderation as they are quite high in the naturally occuring sugar – fructose, so I would not recommend more than 1-2 per day – even less if you are trying to lose weight, even better eat them in conjunction with good fat or protein – such as those found in my recipe in the form of the unrefined coconut oil and cocoa butter in the chocolate. The GI factor – or insulin producing factor of the dates will also decrease when you eat high GI carbohydrates with protein or fat – a good thing 🙂

    Choose low sugar fruits to snack on – such as berries, or actiavted raw nuts, but a small piece of my nothing naughty coconut rocky road wont do any harm!
    Hope this helps

  7. Hi Sally,

    Looks really yummy!

    I love dates and love to snack on them every day but Im just curious how much one should consume a day? Is the sugar in dates bad for you?
