Vegan Nutty Chocolate Squares Recipe from BigCityDreamer made with Coconut Syrup

This wonderful recipe was created by the super talented BigCityDreamer aka @fresheather ! It’s a definite to try out yourself in the kitchen and is a great example of what delicious goodies you can make with a few splashes of our delicious coconut syrup!

Base Layer:
3/4 cup ground pecan nuts (or 3/4 cup coconut flour – although it is a bit too dry with this)
2 tbsp cacao (or cocoa)
3 – 4 tbsp Bali Nutra coconut syrup
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted (I use Coconut Merchant)

Combine all ingredients until they clump together (you can do this by hand). Press into a small lined square baking tray – the smaller the tray, the thicker the layers!

………

Middle Layer:
1/2 cup crunchy PB (or almond butter… or hazelnut butter… any nut butter)!
3 tbsp Bali Nutra coconut syrup
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted

Mix PB, syrup and oil until combined. Spread on top of base layer. Put in the fridge or freezer while you’re making the next layer.

………

Topping:
1/4 cup cacao powder (I use Bioglan)
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
3 tbsp Bali Nutra coconut syrup

Mix the cacao, melted coconut oil and coconut syrup together until you have a smooth, melted chocolate consitency (have to admit, I ate quite a bit of this part before it made it into the baking tray)! Pour on top of the middle layer and spread evenly with a spatula (bang the base of the tray on the worktop a few times to make the top smooth and even).

Set in the fridge for 30 mins and you’re good to go! It tastes amazing after the chocolate has just set and the rest is still melty! Cut into squares and store in the fridge!
