Raw Vegan Choc Bites

Twelve months ago now, I made the choice for health reasons to become a vegan, so I have been on a journey kicking all those animal products that were in my diet.  Giving up the meat was easy but giving up my cheese and yoghurt has proven to be a little more difficult!  However I have discovered along the way some really yummy vegan recipes so I'll share a few with you.

Ingredients

1 cup puffed quinoa
2 cup raw pecans
1/4 cup cacao
450 gm fresh dates, pitted
3/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1/4 cup currants

Method

  • Grease a line a small slice tin sprinkle half the puffed quinoa on the bottom
  • Process the pecans, and cacao in a food processor until fine
  • Add the dates one at a time.
  • Add the almonds, coconut and currants, process until combined
  • Spoon into the tin pressing out over the puffed quinoa
  • Sprinkle remaining puffed quinoa over the top and press firmly into the slice
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours or until form
