I Love this mix….the perfect vegan chocolate. Not too sweet and due to not much coconut oil it doesn’t melt too quickly and with the added almonds is a healthy meal all on its own! You can safely give this to the kids after dinner and you know it’s completely good for them.



3/4 cup raw almonds, or cashews or hazelnuts…any raw nut will do

1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

1/3 cup cacao powder

1 1/3 cup dates (medjool are the best)

1/3 cup organic coconut oil

1 tblspn maple syrup

5 drops doTERRA Wild Orange Essential Oil

1 tspn vanilla

a pinch of himalayan salt


Combine the almonds, coconut and cacao in a food processor until the almonds are nicely ground up. Remove and set aside in a separate bowl.

Place the dates in the food processor and process until they become a paste then add the almond mix and the remaining ingredients and process away until they are all nicely combined.

Place the mixture into a dish lined with baking paper and press down firmly.

Place in the freezer and when its a little hard cut into bite sized pieces.

Place in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
