Serves: 12

Ingredients

Chocolate Crust

⅔ cup raw almonds

⅔ cup raw pecans

10 large medjool dates

6 tablespoons raw cacao powder

 

Haupia

1/2 cup arrowroot powder

3/4 cup water

1 can full fat coconut milk

2 tablespoons raw honey

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup dark chocolate, chopped or chocolate chips

 

Instructions

Chocolate Crust

1. grind the almonds and pecans, one at the time, in a food processor leaving a few small chunksremove pits from dates and process in the food processor until creamy

2. mix all crust ingredients until well combined and then evenly spread it on the bottom of an 8×8-inch pan lined with parchment paper

 

Haupia

1. combine the arrowroot powder and water in a bowl and mix until all the arrowroot has dissolvedadd the arrowroot mixture to a saucepan along with the coconut milk and raw honey

2. slowly cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until it thickensremove from the stove and stir in the vanilla extract

3. pour mixture over the crust and refrigerate overnight or until the coconut layer is firmcut into squares and drizzle with melted dark chocolate or chocolate chips. I like using a ziploc bag to drizzle the chocolate. Cut a small hole on one end of the bag and fill it with the melted chocolate.

1 tbsp flour of choice (or protein powder)

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tsp instant coffee powder

1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut (not low-fat)

1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp milk of choice or canned coconut milk

3 tbsp agave or pure maple syrup

pinch stevia or 1 more tbsp agave or maple syrup

1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

just over 1/16 tsp salt

melted chocolate chips or healthy chocolate sauce, for dipping

 

Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a tall dish. If using a microwave, heat two minutes. Stir, then microwave one more minute or until firm enough to scoop out into ball shapes. (Or cook on the stovetop until it’s firm enough to scoop out.)

 

Scoop into balls on a cookie tray—I used a melon baller, but a spoon or ice-cream scoop will also work. Bake at 360 F for 14-16 minutes. 

 

Chocolate sauce recipe (instead of choc chips)

4 tablespoons (60g) virgin coconut oil

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon (52g) cocoa powder. (For a sauce, decrease to 1/4 cup)

1/4 cup agave OR you can use nunaturals vanilla stevia drops (I use 10 vanilla drops, but if you don’t like super-bitter chocolate, triple that amount)

 

Dip each cookie in melted chocolate, place on the wax paper, and refrigerate or freeze to set. Makes 12-22 cookies, depending on the size cookie scoop you use.
