Raw Cacao Coconut Flan
Day 50: I ate almost half of this as soon as it was made. I had to force myself to stop! Nothing beats raw chocolate.
This is adapted from Rawmazing.com. I made it in one 8″ pan, used almond flour leftover from my almond milk, added a few drops of mint essence in the crust, doubled the amount of filling and used raw coconut sugar instead of agave, as I prefer not to use the latter. I suspect using the agave keeps the chocolate moist and runny, whereas mine became hardened chocolate, which was exactly what I needed! The chocolate hardens before your eyes, like magic! I suspect the runnier version is more practical.
1 C dried, unsweetened coconut
1/3 C raw coconut Oil
1/2 C almond Flour
1-2 drops of mint essence
Combine all ingredients in food processor, pat into an 8″ bevelled flan dish. Press down with your fingers until it flattens across the pan and up around the sides.
Place in the freezer so it gets nice and crispy.
1 C raw cacao powder
1/2 C raw coconut oil
4 Tbs raw coconut sugar
P.S. – don’t do like I did which was to eat almost half of it in one sitting, as – afterwards – it gave me a tummy-ache! Limit your slices or, better yet, share it with eager, chocolate-loving friends.
