Low Disaccharide

This chocolate is truly amazing as you can change it to suit your individual taste. Add nuts, dried fruit or whatever flavours you like, or omit any of these.

SOME IDEAS:

Peppermint oil or chopped mint leaves

Chilli powder

Goji berries

Remember to be Low Disaccharide, the dried fruit must be omitted, only use nuts and seeds. Also Natvia, Stevia, honey or dextrose must be used, not any of the other sugars.

Makes: 4-5 cups

Prep time: 15 mins

Cooking time: 15 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 coconut oil
  • 1 cup nuts (almonds, cashews, pistachios)
  • 1 cup seeds (sunflower, pepitas, chia, linseeds)
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit (ginger, berries, apricots)Omit for low disaccharides
  • 1 cup cacao (cocoa, carob)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup sweetener (natvia, stevia, honey, glucose, rice malt syrup)
  • 2 tbsp protein powder (whey, rice, vanilla, chocolate) OPTIONAL
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs
  • Optional Extras: grated ginger, chilli powder, chopped mint.

Method

  • Preset oven to 180’C. Line lamington tray with baking paper.
  • In grinder, chop seeds as finely as you like them. Fruit can be chopped now too, if using.
  • Roast nuts on lamington tray in oven for 15 mins, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove nuts and add coconut oil to hot dish and stir until melted.
  • Add all other ingredients and mix well. Pour into prepared tray.
  • Place tray into fridge until chilled, about 1 hour.
  • Lift chocolate out of tray by the baking paper, and place on a chopping board.
  • Cut into bite size pieces and store in a container in the freezer.
  • As long as the combined seeds, nuts and dried fruit equals about 3 cups, this will work.
  • I grind my linseeds finely as they are better digested, and chia seeds so they don’t lodge in my teeth.
  • As coconut oil melts quickly, these cannot be packed in lunch boxes, but must be stored in the fridge, or preferably freezer, and eaten straight from there.
  • I consider these to be grain free, as the rice protein powder has the protein extracted from the grain, and I do not have a problem with it with my grain allergy. Check your own results before consuming large amounts of anything new.
