Raw Coconut Cream Squares and a GIVEAWAY
Hello! I hope you're having a great week! There are have been more amazing chocolate zucchini cake remakes and I looove seeing them. I always re-post in my instastories with your credit so make sure to tag me if you've made it (or any recipe of mine and I'll share). Priscilla and I have just filmed a recipe video for it as well which I'll share soon.
Today's recipe is for the coconut lover! These raw vegan coconut cream squares are YUMMY and are easy to make.
A nut-free coconut cream filling sits on a chewy cashew coconut crust, all drizzled with chocolate sauce and sprinkled coconut flakes. You could turn this into an entirely nut-free treat by subbing in hemp hearts or pumpkin seeds for the cashews in the base.
Coconut Cream Squares
Raw- Vegan - Gluten Free - Nut Free Option
1 3/4 cup shredded coconut
3/4 cup cashew pieces*
3/4 cup pitted lightly packed dates
1 1/2 - 2 teaspoons of water
Grind the coconut and cashews to flour in a food processor. Add the dates and water. Process until it forms a moist dough. Press into the bottom of the pan.
*Sub in hemp hearts or pumpkin seeds (or both) for a nut-free option.
2/3 cup + 1 tablespoon melted "Let's Do Organic" creamed coconut (or coconut butter)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 1/2 tablespoons coconut nectar
3/4 cup warm water
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy in a blender. Pour over the base. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours or until firm. Slice into squares (they cut very easily), drizzle with chocolate sauce, and sprinkle with coconut flakes.
2 tablespoons coconut nectar
2 tablespoons cacao powder, sifed
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1-2 teaspoons hot water
Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. It should be thick, glossy, and smooth. Make sure it stays warm or it won't be as fluid.
