Gluten Free Choc Granola Slice

{ You can make this gluten free treat as naughty or as nice as you like. Either way, dark chocolate is good for you… right?? }

{ INGREDIENTS }

1 cup almond meal

1/2 cup coconut or buckwheat flour

1/3 cup coconut sugar 

3 eggs

1/2 cup coconut (or macadamia/olive oil)

1 cup gluten and dairy free dark chocolate buttons/chunks

1 cup gluten free granola (or mixed nuts & dried fruit)

1 tsp cinnamon

sprinkle sea salt

{ METHOD }

Preheat oven to 160’C and line a 20cm baking tray with baking paper. Set aside.

Add almond meal, coconut flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon to a bowl. Combine with a fork.

Add eggs, coconut oil and combine until a dough/batter consistency is formed.

Spoon the mixture into the tray and press all of the leftover ‘topping’ ingredients into the mixture (like above image).  Make sure you spread them evenly so the slice is easy to cut and doesn’t crumble due to large chunks of granola/chocolate.

Bake for 25-30 minutes in the oven until golden brown.

Allow to cool and store in the fridge for up to a week. 

NOTE: The coconut flour and almond meal combination will make it the slightest bit ‘crumbly’ due to no gluten holding it all together. Let it cool fully before slicing and it will still work perfectly as a lunchbox, morning tea/afternoon snack and won’t fall apart. 

The great thing about this recipe is that it is very versatile! You can add any toppings, dried fruit, chocolate, nuts, seeds you desire and in whatever quantities. Definitely curbs the sweet cravings as a ‘healthy’ snack alternative and you decide what ingredients you add to it.
