Vegan & GF Hazelnut Chocolate Slice

Ingredients: (thought it would be easiest to do it in sections)


Base:

Filling:

  • 1/2 cup almond butter

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/2 cup roasted hazelnuts

Top layer:

  • 1 cup vegan dark chocolate

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil

  • 1/2 cup roasted hazelnuts



How to make:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius. Using a baking tray, place all the hazelnuts on and distribute evenly. Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Once roasted, use a tea towel to rub the skins of the hazelnuts off. Set aside.

  2. Line a loaf/brownie tin and set aside.

  3. Using a food processor, blend the oats until it forms a powder. Then pulse in the dates until its a course meal. Add in the remaining base ingredients and blend until combined.

  4. Empty the mixture into the lined loaf pan, and use your hands to pack mixture down firmly. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out the mixture (if desired). Transfer to freezer while you prepare remaining layers.

  5. Using a medium bowl, combine all the filling ingredients (except the hazelnuts)

  6. Once combined and smooth, fold through the hazelnuts.

  7. Pour on top of the frozen base layer and set in fridge for 10-15 minutes.

  8. Once 5 minutes are left of cooling, melt the chocolate with the coconut oil.

  9. Pour the chocolate as evenly as possible over the other layers and sprinkle remaining hazelnuts on top.

  10. Set in fridge for another 10 minutes, or until chocolate is set.

  11. Slice into desired shapes and enjoy!

Tips:

  • Make sure the middle layer is set firmly before pouring chocolate on top to avoid it seeping into the other layers.

  • This delish treat can last in the fridge for up to a week.
