Raw Chocolate Buckwheatie Bites
If you find yourself flagging around 4pm and craving something sweet, these little squares of raw chocolate delight give you a perfect guilt free boost.
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ¾ agave
  • 1¾ cup cacao powder (or Green & Blacks cocoa), sifted
  • ¾ cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup dehydrated buckwheat (replace buckwheat with chopped nuts, seeds or goji berries)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. In a blender, place the coconut oil, agave, desiccated coconut and vanilla extract and mix well.
  2. In a large bowl, pour the blended coconut mixture and gradually add in the sifted cacao powder. Give it a good stir to make sure no balls of powder remain.
  3. Stir in half a cup of the dehydrated buckwheat or seeds, keeping the other half for topping.
  4. Pour the chocolate mixture into a tupperwear or silicone container and press down until the mixture becomes around ¾ inch thick.
  5. Sprinkle with the remaining buckwheat and gentle press down.
  6. Place in the fridge for 10 mins to firm slightly, then remove and cut into 1inch squares (or whatever shape takes your fancy).
  7. Place back in fridge and leave to firm up completely.
  8. When set, break the pieces up and place back in an air tight container.
