Raw Peanut Butter and Chocolate Rough

This recipe was simple and super easy to throw together. I actually realised that it was Halloween and made this in anticipation for some little trick-or-treaters.

And come they did. They knocked on my door and yelled ‘trick or treat’, and looked totally down trodden when I told them I had no sweets for them. And then I pulled out a few pieces of this, and they quickly ate them. Their faces lit up, and they asked for more. One little boy exclaiming ‘wow, this is amazing!’.

It really is. I will be making this forever.

Ingredients

1 cup coconut, desiccated or shredded
1 cup raw cacao powder
1 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup any organic dried fruit
1 cup any nut, roughly chopped
1/3 cup of sweetener of choice (I used honey)
1/3 cup organic peanut butter, or any nut butter

I used slivered almonds, cashews and apricots
