Prep: 25 mins
Total time: 5 hours (setting time)
Makes: 24 small bars
½ cup ground buckwheat groats
1 cup desiccated coconut
½ cup (1 ½ bars) Well Naturally No Sugar Added Chocolate Rich Dark
½ cup dates
¼ cup melted coconut oil
2 cups raw cashews, soaked overnight or 5 hours
½ cup dates
2 tbs coconut milk **
1 tbs melted coconut oil
Juice of one large lemon
1 ½ tbs lemon zest
2 bars Well Naturally No Sugar Added Chocolate Rich Dark
2 tbs coconut butter
½ tbs lemon zest for decorating
- Line a rectangular brownie tray with baking paper.
- For the first layer: process buckwheat groats and desiccated coconut in a food processor. Once texture is fine, add Well Naturally Chocolate, followed by dates and melted coconut oil. Press mixture firmly into base of tin and place in freezer to set whilst making the second layer.
- Rinse soaked cashews. Process cashews until they reach a creamy texture, add dates and continue mixing. Add coconut milk, coconut oil, lemon juice, zest and salt. Process until smooth. **Depending on how long cashews were soaked, you may need to add extra coconut milk for easier blending.
- Spread cashew lemon filling on top of chocolate base.
- Place in freezer for 15-20 mins.
- For the icing: place a small saucepan of water on medium/low heat on the stovetop. Place chocolate and coconut butter into a glass or metal bowl over the top of the saucepan and allow to slowly melt, stirring continuously. (You can also microwave on low, checking every 30 seconds to mix well).
- Pour icing over slice and decorate with lemon rind and coconut.
- Place in freezer to set for 4+ hours.
- Once set, slice with a warm knife and store in freezer or fridge before serving.
