Satisfaction Slice

I developed this Satisfaction Slice as a way to trick the taste buds into thinking they were getting a sweet treat, while really we are just loading up on brain food. 

Ok, so just a heads up – these are not sweet! They seem to be sweet and the look, texture and smell all say.. yummy this is sweet… but in actual fact there is very little sweetness – instead there is a heap of nutrition…… brain food and good old satisfaction

Ingredients:

½ cup coconut oil melted

100gms cacao butter melted

½ cup LSA

½ cup almond meal

1 /4 cup pepitas crushed/ blitzed

¼ cup walnuts crushed/ blitzed

¼ cup of nut butter such as ABC nut spread

¼ cup chia seeds

1 vanilla pod

1 tab cacao powder

2 tablespoons naked ginger pieces finely chopped

Sometimes I throw in some whole nuts

 

Process:

Melt the oil and cacao butter in a small saucepan

Get all the dry ingredients together

Mix in nut butter and melted mix

Press into a lined casserole dish or loaf pan

You can sprinkle the top with sesame seeds or crushed pepitas or coconut flakes

Once it sets in the fridge – remove from the dish/tin and slice up with a sharp knife.

I portion mine up and wrap in grease proof paper or else they disappear!! Then they are ready to go.
