Goji Choc and Nut Treats 002

About a week ago I bought a jar of cacao and coconut butter, which is really very delicious, so instead of eating the yummy butter straight out of the jar,  I made something with it!

I found some pumkin seeds, sunflower seeds & goji berries in my cupboard and decided that I’d use them to make something with the butter. I also had some desiccated coconut in my cupboard and thought it’d be great in my recipe too.

So this is how they are easily made:

First put a handful of each of the following into a food processor till
roughly chopped: goji berries, seeds and the coconut.
(by roughly chopped I mean till the gojis are about a 1/4 of their original size).
Next add in the cacao and coconut butter (around half a cup- 1 cup)
and blend again! 
When the mixture starts to clump a bit, take it out of the mixer
and place into your desired container. Press the mixture down
so it flattens and combines well. Cut the mixture into slices
and either eat straight away (or place in the freezer for an ice-cold
and slightly firmer slice).

Note: if you do not have cacao/coconut butter you can use
coconut butter and cacao/cocoa powder as a substiute or
a bit of coconut oil and cacao/cocoa powder.
