Scale

Ingredients

BASE: 

  • 80 g Medjool dates 
  • 60 g walnuts
  • 150 g almond meal
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar

FILLING: 

  • 350 g cashews, soaked overnight
  • 150 g white chocolate, melted
  • 130 g brown rice syrup, or honey

RASPBERRY COULIS: 

  • 100 g raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 20brown rice syrup, or honey

Instructions

BASE: 

  1. Add the almond meal, coconut sugar, walnuts and dates in a food processor. Pulse for several minutes until you get a smooth and wet consistency. 
  2. Place some parchment paper in the bottom of a square cake tin (25 x 23 cm, so almost square). Press down with your hands or the flat base of a glass or ramekin until you get a smooth surface.
  3. Pop into the freezer.

FILLING: 

  1. Add all the ingredients in a food processor and blend for 3-5 minutes until you get a super smooth and creamy consistency. 

RASPBERRY COULIS: 

  1. Add the raspberries (either fresh or frozen) to a small pan with the brown rice syrup or honey. Place it on low heat and stir using a spoon, until all the fruits have broken apart, approximately after 5 minutes.
  2. Once all the raspberries are pureed, sift it and press down the raspberries with a spoon in order to catch all the seeds and not waste any pulp.

ASSEMBLY: 

  1. Take the base out of the freezer, which should already be quite firm.
  2. Pour the cashew and white choc mix on top and level it using a spatula or the back of a spoon.
  3. Then, pour the raspberry coulis as you prefer. It can be one thin layer or in the shape of swirls.
  4. Pop into the freezer for at least 2 hours. Or ideally overnight, to make sure they are 100% solid.
  5. Once they are solid, using a very sharp knife, and making sure to clean it after each cut, cut this dessert into square bars, and enjoy!
