Good Food Friday: Alice Nicholls’ Raw Vegan Chocolate Tahini Slice


What the actual heck!?  Check out these little beauties courtesy of the ever gorgeous Alice Nicholls.  I’m not going to take a minute more of your beautiful friday – let’s get into these babies!



Take it away Alice….

I always use silicon trays for quick raw treats because when cold or frozen, they can be ‘popped’ straight out from the underneath.  These were made in mini muffin trays but you could use a small spring-form pan.  It makes either 6 small slices or an 8cm small round cake/slice.



1 cup cashews blitzed in the food processor until it resembles a fine powder
1 tbs coconut oil
1 tbs rice malt syrup (2 if you’ve got a sweet tooth)
2 tsp raw cacao powder
2 tsp tahini paste (sesame seed paste)
pinch of sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste (optional but AMAZING!)

Choc Top

1 tbs coconut oil
1 tbs raw cacao powder
2 tsp rice malt syrup


Start with the choc top by melting the rice malt syrup, cacao and coconut oil together.  Pour 1-2tsp into each silicon mini muffin tray.  (about 2mm high).  Put in the freezer to set and make the slice.

Fir slice, melt rice malt syrup and coconut oil together in a small bowl over simmering water and stir into the cashew powder along with the cacao, tahini and vanilla bean paste if you’re using.  Roll into tsp sized balls and press into the muffin pan on top of the set choc top and press to even out.  Place into the freezer for 15 minutes or until set and eat straight from the freezer because that is how they are most HOLY YUMMO!

    I made these about 2 days after they were posted on the Whole Daily. They are so good that I had to make another batch the next day! They remind me of those chewy sesame glucose bars but so much better!
    Thanks for the recipe Alice 🙂

    I do not have a silicone mini muffin tray – has anyone tried making these in a metal non-stick mini muffin pan? Just wondering if they’ll be a mess to take out of a metal pan or if it’s doable. Thanks!

    Oh So yummy. Shared them with my friends and they agreed. My daughter loves them and my son is not such a fan but he’ll just have to get use to them as they are staying for choc substitutes.
