Raw Cacao Coconut Slice

This super quick and easy raw vegan chocolate slice is very nutritious and definitely satisfies the strongest chocolate craving. They are gluten and dairy free – a bit of a change from the dried fruit, high sugar energy balls or bars about. I think they are so delicious – a bit of a cross between a coconut rough and chocolate crackle. There’s something distinctly nostalgic about these beauties.
