Description

Mocha coconut squares are like healthy brownies with an awakening kick of coffee, ginger, and cayenne. The perfect afternoon snack. Vegan and gluten-free.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled gluten-free oats
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 3 tablespoons finely ground coffee
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 45 pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 tablespoon fresh, grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 24 tablespoons water, more if needed

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, process all dry ingredients (everything listed before the dates) until finely crumbled.
  2. Add dates, raisins, and ginger and process until a sticky mixture is formed.
  3. While the food processor is running, add coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of water. If mixture seems too dry, continue to add water, 1 tablespoon at a time. You want it to hold together without being too sticky.
  4. Once desired texture has been achieved, put mixture on parchment paper and roll out to 1/2-inch thickness.
  5. Cover and refrigerate or freeze to set. Once set, cut into 15 squares. Portion out 3 squares per serving and keep refrigerated until ready to eat.
