These bars look as impressive as they taste and they're deceptively easy to prepare!

Featuring buttery pecans, crunchy raw cacao nibs, and creamy cacao paste layer that’s bursting with antioxidants, you just can't go worn!

These raw, no-bake vegan slices are best served directly from the fridge or defrost from frozen for 10 minutes, mmmm!

For the crust

For the cacao paste filling

For decoration


    1. Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper and set aside
    2. Now, prepare the crust of the raw cacao-pecan slices. Mix all the crust ingredients together until the 'dough' sticks together when pressed between your fingers. Press it evenly into the base of your lined loaf tin, then set aside
    3. Next, prepare the filling: In a medium pan, whisk together the raw cacao powder, sweet freedom and coconut milk and gently heat
    4. Add in the chunks of the raw cacao paste and allow it to melt slowly
    5. Pour the raw cacao filling over the crust very gently
    6. Decorate with your whole pecans and raw cacao nibs and then place in the freezer to set for at least 2 hours and then cut into bars and serve chilled, adding extra decorations such as even more raw cacao nibs and edible flowers, if in season

      Enjoy xx
