Coconut Carob Rough

Makes: 1 Slice

Serves: 8-10

Coconut Carob Rough

Equipment

Ingredients - Base

  • 1 cup almonds (I used activated almonds from Loving Earth). You could use roasted or raw almonds. If using roasted or raw almonds make sure you soak them for 8 hours before hand.
  • 1/2 cup carob powder
  • 1 cup medjool dates (soaked for 3 hours)
  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 tsp tahini (optional)
  • Pinch Himalayan sea salt

Ingredients - Chewy layer

  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts (soaked for 3 hours)
  • 1/3 cup carob powder
  • 1/3 cup rice malt syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • Pinch cinnamon powder
  • Pinch Himalayan sea salt

Method

  1. Add the almonds to your Dry Container and blend on HIGH speed until they turn into a find powder.
  2. Add the carob powder and salt and blend on HIGH speed until well combined.
  3. Transfer your flour mixture to your 2L wet container and add your dates. Blend on HIGH speed until well combined. Use your tamper effectively to push the ingredients down to the blade.
  4. Remove your dough mixture and add it to your two cups of desiccated coconut. Combine really well with your hands.
  5. Transfer this mixture to a square metal tine lined with baking paper and press down until it's firmly packed. Please this in the freezer to set.
  6. Now for the chewy layer.
  7. Add all the topping layer to your 2L wet container and secure the lid.
  8. Turn your machine onto variable speed 1, quickly turn up to variable speed 10 and then override to HIGH speed.
  9. Use the tamper to effectively press the ingredients into the blades whilst processing.
  10. Blend for 30-45 seconds or until desired consistency is reached.
  11. Stop the machine. Take your base out of the freezer and pour your topping over your base.
  12. Place your complete slice into the freezer to set.
  13. Take the slice out of the freezer about half an hour before serving.
  14. Enjoy!

Notes

This can be stored for up to a week in an airtight container in the fridge. I can put money on the fact that it won't last that long...
