After a little something to nibble on that’s sugar free (mostly)?
This treat is mostly for adults and the older kids. All of my kids have road tested this and it got the thumbs up especially from the biggest kid of all.
The toddler took it chewed it and spat it out. I guess I should be happy she put it in her mouth.
ok here it goes.
Pumpkin coconut Crunch
1 1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds ( pepitas)
1 cup of shredded coconut
1 tablespoon of coconut oil /butter (yes it’s not cheap but handy to use instead of butter)
1/2 cup of Rice malt syrup (its cheaper than honey)
pinch of salt
6 pieces of 85% dark chocolate (melted)
pre-heat oven to 150
put all dry ingredients on a bowl (not chocolate &salt)
Melt coconut butter and rice syrup, until just melted. pour over the top of the dry ingredients and stir through. place on to a lined slice tray and pop into the oven for 15-20 mins or until browned slightly. once cooked let the slice completely cool. while cooling sprinkle the pinch of salt on top.
when the slice is cooled drizzle the melted chocolate on the top and put into the freezer for ten minutes. take it out and cut into bite sized pieces.
hope you like this one as much as I do, I am pretty proud of it.
