Raw Crunchy Chocolate Slice

Posted by on

This slice came about when I was trying to get a little more protein in our diet during a period when we ate very little animal products. Most people eat enough protein, however if your diet is predominantly vegan based, it pays to put in a little more effort to include plant based protein foods like nuts & seeds.  In this delicious slice I’ve included tahini, hemp seeds, pepitas and nuts which not only bump up your amino acid intake but also add a load of other nutrients.  I use activated nuts & seeds to keep lectin intake lower.

It makes a tasty treat with a cup of tea or coffee, or a lunchbox surprise for little (or big) people!
