Sugar Free High Raw Chocolate Mint Bars


by Teniel Moore {Raw Foods Contributor}
Do you love chocolate & Coconut?
 I’ve got a yummy little raw treat that you can devour straight from the freezer.
In Australia we have biscuits called Mint Slice (you call them cookies we call them biscuits). I’m not sure if you have mint slice in America, but I’m sure you have something similar.
These little raw treats remind me exactly of those biscuits. Except my version is not filled with refined sugars and preservatives. In fact my version does not even contain sugar! Extra bonus!
Ingredients for Coconut Base: All organic if you can
  • 3/4 Cup shredded coconut  (make sure to buy no added sugar coconut) add a little more to make it go further if you like. I often do.
  • Stevia drops to taste
  • 1/4 Cup of melted Coconut oil
  • 1 Capful of peppermint oil  (I use the organic frontier brand this oil is the only thing that makes these bars not 100% raw. But the peppermint oil is what makes the slice what it is. So don’t skip this part)
  • 1/4 Heaped cup of cashews
Ingredients for chocolate coating: All organic if you can
  • 1-2 Tbs of Raw cacao powder
  • Approximately 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • Stevia to taste
The quantities for this chocolate coating is really a huge guesstimate! I never measure this part I’m sorry. Just add as much of each to give it a smooth silky consistency not too runny but not too thick. You need this to coat the bars nicely.
Blend your cashews and coconut together in a high speed blender till well combined and broken down. Next add your coconut oil stevia and your peppermint oil. Taste as you go and add more stevia or peppermint oil if needed.
Now take your mixture about a table spoon at a time and mould into the shape you like. I choose to do bars but round patties would work well also.
Line your bars up on a lined container that will fit in your freezer.
Pop your bars into the freezer for at least 20 minutes  to firm up while you make the chocolate mixture.
To make the chocolate mix together your melted coconut oil, stevia & raw cacao powder till silky and smooth.
Dip your frozen bars into the chocolate mix till evenly combined and well covered. Pop back in the freezer to set. You can repeat this process again to make sure you have a nice thick coating on your bars.
Store your mint bars in the freezer. They should keep for months but I’ve never tested that theory in my house, as they don’t last very long.
{pin it, please?}
I hope you enjoy this recipe and go make them for your self.
I would love to hear your comments and feed back.
