These vegan, raw chocolate and hazelnut bars can be enjoyed as a dessert, energy snack or middle-of-the-day treat. You can make them in 10 minutes, no baking required.
Add the hazelnuts, oats and almond flour to the processor. Blend until you get a fine flour (or coarse, if you prefer it that way).
Add the dates and coconut oil. Blend again until the flour starts to stick. Use your hands to mix if needed.
Line a small rectangular baking tray (20x15cm) with baking paper. Press the base dough usings your fingers to create an even base of about 3-4mm thick.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave. Add the coconut oil, mix well using a spoon. Pour over the base.
Roughly chop the hazelnuts, sprinkle over the chocolate. Put in the fridge for 20-30 mins and enjoy!
Slicing without breaking the chocolate
Leave the tray outside the fridge for the chocolate to thaw, 15-20 mins before slicing.
Making it into a cake
You can use a circular tin instead of a rectangular one, and slice it into triangles.
