5 minute study snack

This is one of my go to recipes for study. 

Full of healthy fats, immune boosting vitamin C and plenty of wholesome ingredients to see you through exam period.

This recipe is super versatile, so I’ll provide a base recipe, and you can throw in what ever is sitting in your pantry! Easy.

  
Chocolate ingredients:

Equal parts coconut oil and cacao (I used half a cup of each)

Sweetener to taste (honey, maple syrup or coconut nectar)

Instructions:

Place coconut oil and sweetener in a saucepan over very low heat. We want to melt the oil, but keep it at a low temperature so as to not denature the beneficial properties of bothe the oil and the other ingredients we are adding later.

While the coconut oil is melting, roughly chop up some dried fruit, nuts, and seeds. I used sunflower seeds, pepitas, apricots, cashews and dried cherries. Use whatever you have lying around.

Line a baking tray with grease proof paper and pop in all the chopped bits, spread evenly over the base.

Once the coconut oil is half melted, turn off the heat and whisk until liquid. Place in cacao and whisk again until smooth. 

At this point, I sprinkled some Camu Camu powder over the nuts and seeds. It is very high in Vitamin C, which we all know does wonders for the immune system.

Final step is to pour the chocolate mix over the fruit and nuts, shake it a little to settle the chocolate to the bottom, and coat the nuts and seeds. 

Pop it in the fridge to set. Once solid, cut into bite size pieces and enjoy!
