Looks like this recipe section is filling up quickly! That is because there are so many options. Made this over Christmas and it was definitely a hit!

So lets go!
Print Recipe Card


1 cup (240 grams) of coconut oil

3 tbs. of very good cacao powder

3-4 tbs. of maple syrup or agave syrup

1 tbs. of almonds (chopped)

6 dates (the softer the better)

1 tsp. of goji berries

1 tbs. of peanut butter

Orange peel

Pinch of Himalayan salt

Pinch of cinnamon (optional)


Melt the coconut oil in a bowl over hot water - when it is melted add cacao powder and maple/agave.

Line a rectangular sandwich box (that’s what I use) with baking paper and add a layer of your chocolate mix.

Add a layer of goodies - dates (I like to tear them up) gojis, nuts, and random dollops of peanut butter.

Add another layer (the rest of your mix) and any leftover of the toppings. Sprinkle a tiny bit of Himalayan on top, cinnamon and spread some orange peel on the top.

The size of this bar is like the size of a normal chocolate bar just a bit thicker.

Put it the fridge to set - when you are ready to try some or serve cut with a hot knife to make pretty pieces.

TIP: I have tried every single cacao that I can get my hands on. But the one I tend to use the most is the Valhorna from Mercadonna. It’s 100% and has a natural sweetness because the beans have been roasted slowly. For you guys in the UK I like Willies Chocolate, especially the 100% cylinders.
