I think chocolate and coffee are a match made in heaven. This nourishing Raw Coffee Slice is a guilt-free piece of heaven and a must to share with a coffee-loving significant other.

Makes: 12 slices



  • Base
  • 200g hazelnut meal
  • ¼ cup sweetener (rice-malt syrup, honey or maple syrup)
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder

  • Filling
  • 350g cashew nuts (soaked for minimum 2–3 hours)
  • ¼ cup sweetener (rice-malt syrup, honey or maple syrup)
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil
  • 50–70mL espresso coffee, cooled (approx. 2 shots)

  • Raw Chocolate*
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp sweetener (rice-malt syrup, honey or maple syrup)
  • 4 tbsp cacao powder
  • * Alternatively, you can use 150g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  1. In food processor or blender, add hazelnut meal, sweetener and cacao and mix until fully combined.
  2. Press into 20cm × 30cm slice tin (lined with baking sheet) and place in freezer while you make filling.
  3. Drain liquid from cashews and rinse well. Process in food processor to form paste.
  4. Add remaining filling ingredients and mix on high speed until smooth and creamy. You may need to scrape the sides of processor a few times.
  5. Spread filling over base and return to freezer to set (about 20 mins).
  6. Either melt dark chocolate in bowl over pot of hot water or make raw chocolate by mixing all ingredients together.
  7. Once filling is set, pour over melted chocolate and set in freezer (approx. 5 mins).
  8. Cut into squares (with large, sharp knife run under boiling water) and store in freezer until ready to serve.
