Ingredients

Base

  • 2 cups cashews, soaked 1 hour in hot water and drained
  • 12 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/4 cup cocoa (or cacao) powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

Filling

  • 1 1/2 cups raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup

Topping

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup cocoa (or cacao) powder

Instructions

Base

  • Line an 8 inch square baking pan with enough baking paper to overlap two sides of the pan.
    Place the dates, cocoa, coconut oil and 1 cup cashews in a blender and process to a coarse paste. Spread evenly into the prepared pan, then transfer to the freezer to firm up.

Filling

  • Place the raspberries, coconut, honey and remaining 1 cup cashews in a blender and process to a smooth paste. Spread the mixture evenly over the chilled base, then return to the freezer to firm up.

Topping

  • Place the ingredients in a bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water and stir until smooth and combined. Remove the bowl from the heat and cool to room temperature. Pour over the chilled raspberry filling, then return the pan to the freezer to set.
    Once the topping has set, remove the pan from the freezer, then, using the baking paper lift the slice out of the pan. Using a hot knife, cut into 18 bars to serve. Keep frozen or refrigerated until ready to serve.
