A sweet treat thats good for your health


Gooey caramel fudge and cashew pieces in the middle, a nourishing base plus real, raw chocolate to top it off. Yum! An easy sweet treat to enjoy.

Meanwhile, your body gets to enjoy the beta-glucan and resistant starch provided by the oats, the omega-3 fatty acids from the flaxseeds and the high fibre content of the dates and cashews.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes in the fridge
Serves: 25


Ingredients
Base
1 cup rolled oats
2 tabs ground flaxseed
3 tabs coconut oil
3 tabs honey
1 tsp vanilla

Fudge
2 cups dates (diced or whole)
1 cup cashews

Chocolate topping
3 tabs coconut oil (warmed to liquid)
3 tabs cacao powder
3 tabs honey

Method
  • Line a square cake tin with baking paper
  • Pour boiling water over the cashews and dates - enough to cover.


  • Whizz the oats in a food processor or blender until some of the oats have broken down. Leaving some of the oats whole is fine.


  • Mix the base ingredients and press into the tin with the back of a spoon. Tip - soften the coconut oil in the microwave if it's hard.


  • Drain the dates and cashews and whizz in a food processor until it starts to form a paste. (I left some visible cashew pieces but you can keep blending if you prefer.)
  • Spread and smooth down the cashew and date fudge paste over the base. Tip - Using a wet spoon stops it sticking,


  • Mix the chocolate ingredients together and pour over the fudge layer.


  • Put into the fridge to set.
  • Cut into 5 x 5 rows and store in the fridge.
