Chocolate Superfood Slice

I’m a self-confessed chocoholic! I love chocolate, especially dark chocolate so if I can find a healthy treat that includes chocolate then I’m one happy gal!!

This slice is so simple to make and tastes so delicious that you will find it hard to stop at once piece.

Choc-full of nuts, goji berries and chia seeds it’s the perfect blend of health and treat in one slice.

Makes approx. 16 squares

Ingredients-

  • 1 C Puffed rice
  • 1/2 C roasted almonds
  • 1/4 C chia seeds
  • 1/3 C shredded coconut
  • 1/4 C goji berries
  • 200g melted dark chocolate (min. 70% cocoa solids if possible)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Method-

Step 1. Grease a square 20cm X 20cm baking tin and line with baking paper.

Place the dark chocolate (broken in to pieces) along with the tsp of coconut oil in to a heatproof dish. Place in the microwave for short 30 second bursts until the chocolate and coconut oil has melted and is smooth. Stir frequently to ensure all the chocolate has melted. *
