Healthy choc, almond, coconut slice

If you're looking for a delicious slice that could turn from a snack into a meal, this is the one for you! It is one of my all time favourite chocolate-y treats as they are easy to make and nutritious.

It contains almond flour so is gluten-free, which makes it a great option for those with celiac disease or a wheat intolerance. It is incredibly nutritious and provides many potential health benefits, including a reduced risk of heart disease and improved blood sugar control. 

This recipe is from Well Nourished, I just add collagen!


  • 300g of almond meal (2½ cups firmly packed)
  • 80g desiccated coconut (1 cup approx). Shredded coconut is also fine 
  • ½ cup nut butter (I like ABC nut spread for this recipe) ABC butter for those of you that don't know is almond, brazil nut, cashew spread!
  • 4 scoops of Maternally Happy Unflavoured Collagen
  • 4 tbs organic rice malt syrup, honey or maple syrup - adjust the amount to make these more, or less sweet to suit your taste
  • ½ cup organic coconut oil 
  • 1 tbs vanilla bean essence 
  • 1 tbs of organic coconut flour
  • 80g dark chocolate -melted (I use loving earth dark chocolate- it is dairy free). It is probably safe to buy 2 blocks in case you like to snack like me!


  • Mix all ingredients (except the chocolate) together in a food processor until well combined and forming a rough paste. Thermomix 30 seconds, speed 4. Or just stir to combine in large bowl! No equipment is needed, trust me, I have tried!
  • Pour into a slice tin lined with baking paper.
  • Refrigerate until set (about an hour).
  • Once set, melt the chocolate in a bowl placed over a pot of simmering water, stirring continually. Spread evenly with a spatula over the almond mix and refrigerate again until the chocolate is just set (10 minutes).
  • Remove from the tin and slice into small bars.
  • Remember to keep these in the fridge or freezer. As with any raw coconut oil based product, they'll melt if not kept cold!
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
