Chelsea's Coconut Rough
« on: July 07, 2013, 11:49:31 am »
My version of the 'Chocolate Alternative' from a Taste of Vegetarian cookbook (we don't like coconut oil :P):

Homemade Coconut Rough

130g raw organic almonds
75g cashews
250g organic pitted dates
30g organic dessicated coconut
30g organic cacao powder or cocoa powder
generous pinch Himalayan salt
30g rapadura
60g butter in cubes
30g organic shredded coconut


Line a lamington tin with baking paper.

Place nuts into TMX bowl and grind for 8 seconds on speed 7. Set aside in a large mixing bowl.

Add all other ingredients (except butter and shredded coconut) and chop for 30 seconds on speed 7. Set aside with nuts.

Add butter to TMX bowl and melt for 2 minutes at 60 degrees on speed 2.

Add all ingredients into the bowl with the butter and mix on reverse speed 5 until well combined.

Empty into tin and press out to the edges with knuckles. Smooth over with back of spoon. Score with a knife to create squares and refrigerate. Break or cut into squares when set and keep in fridge.

Notes: Don't forget that cacao is a mild natural stimulant. Go easy on this before bed and also if you are breastfeeding. :-)
