AD/The hero ingredient in this mouth-watering slice is macadamia nuts. This nut is full of good stuff like monounsaturated fats (great for your skin) and protein (which is essential for cell growth). I love the nuts on their own as a mid afternoon snack. Or try this  raw food slice, which is mouth-watering yum. I store it in the freezer and bring out a slice when I crave a sweet treat. The slice is really rich and so one piece is usually enough.
Here’s the recipe. Try it and let me know what you think 🙂

Food Macadamia Nut Slice with Chocolate Drizzle

Step 1: Put baking paper into a baking tin (that is safe to go into the freezer).

250g macadamia nuts

¼ cup maple syrup

¼ cup liquid coconut oil

½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste

Step 2: Place the above ingredients into a blender & mix thoroughly. Then place this mixture into the lined tin and put it into the freezer while you make the next layer.

3 tablespoons liquid coconut oil

4 tablespoons maple syrup

½ cup coconut milk

½ cup coconut flour

½ teaspoon vanilla paste

Step 3: Place the above ingredients into a bowl and stir and then pour onto the macadamia nut mix that had been in the freezer.

Dark chocolate of your choice

Step 4: Create a Bain-marie – a type of heated bath to melt the chocolate. I do this by putting a large pan on the stove and putting a cup of water in it to boil. I place a glass bowl in the pan and then put the chocolate in this to melt safely. A bain-marie is a great way to melt chocolate so you avoid burning it! Place the chocolate in this and melt it.

Step 5: Take the slice out of the freezer and cut it into slices.

Step 6: Use a spoon to drizzle the melted chocolate on top of the frozen slice.

Step 7: Eat a piece of the slice and enjoy! 

This recipe was originally created for Bin Inn -(a grocery store that sells whole foods, organics and speciality foods). They are a great place for buying bulk nuts from. #sponsoredpost
