This chocolate rough containing coconut & nut grounds is a tasty raw recipe with the addition of adaptogenic herbs. It utilises nut grounds from my latest batch of almond, cashew & date mylk. When you make nut mylk, never throw the grounds away! They are an amazing base for both traditional baking (think french flourless chocolate cake) AND for raw creations.
With feijoa season well and truly upon us in the south pacific, even the most hardened feijoa lovers are starting to wonder what to do with the excess! I was asked by Plastic Free Pantry to adapt a recipe that used chocolate & wine biscuits to make them with packaging-free ingredients. I was making nut mylk at the time and so it seemed natural to utilise the nut grounds as the base.
Do you know how easy it is to make a quickie version of jam, using raw fruits and chia seeds? This one utilises a big excess of feijoas that we have at home right now. Other great ideas are boysenberries (or any berries), figs, and plums.
