Chocolatey Hemp Coins with Spicy Raw Hot Chocolate and The Raw Chocolate Company Chocolate Mulberries*
This recipe is for all of you chocolate fiends who don’t have a particularly sweet tooth but crave a chocolatey something mid-afternoon. They do have a small amount of raw coconut palm sugar in them but as it is low GI and unrefined it doesn’t produce the same sugar rush or have that tooth-rotting sweetness of refined white sugar. They are easy to make, involve no cooking and are full of raw energy, but be warned, less is definitely more! I can only manage 2!
These are a good protein pick-me-up containing hemp seeds and sweet apricot kernels (like mini almonds).
The only possible track to jig along to while making these is Choco Choco Latte, so you can sing your heart out and expend some of that Raw Chocolate energy!
1/4 Cup Shelled Hemp Seeds*
1/4 Cup Sweet Apricot Kernels*
1/4 Cup Cacao Powder*
1/4 Cup Raisins
3 Tsps Coconut Palm Sugar*
1/4 Tsp Cinnamon
Approx 2 Tbsps Apple Juice
Raw Chocolate Mulberries Snack Pack*
Put the Hemp Seeds and Sweet Apricot Kernels in the food processor and grind them finely.
Add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix well, adding a little apple juice at a time until the mixture is just moist enough to come together but not too wet.
Take small amounts of the mixture and form into little balls then flatten out into coins on some greaseproof paper.
Press a Raw Chocolate Mulberry into the centre of each coin and place in the fridge for a short time to firm up.
What you do with the leftover Raw Chocolate Mulberries is entirely up to you – but I won’t tell if you don’t.
