  • In a small pot, combine the butter, sweetener, cacao and cinnamon over a low heat, stirring until combined (a few minutes).
  • For a tastier slice, toast the oats, nuts, seeds and coconut in a large pan over a low heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring often (the coconut will colour). Or if you’d prefer, simply combine the dried ingredients raw.
  • Allow to cool a little (if you’ve chosen to toast) and then pulse (quickly) in your food processor a couple of times to chop the nuts a little.
  • Add the wet ingredients and mix together until well combined.
  • Use a big wet serving spoon to press firmly into a small slice tin lined with baking paper.
  • Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to set.
  • Once set, remove from the tin and cut into squares.

Thermomix Method

  • Melt your butter: 1 minute, speed 4, temp. 90. Add the sweetener, cacao and cinnamon and mix 1 minute, speed 4, temp. 90.
  • Add the dried mix. Mix 10 seconds, speed 4. Then process by using the turbo button to pulse a couple of times until the nuts are roughly chopped (to your preferred consistency).
  • Follow from step 5 above.



Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. They will fall apart if not kept cool (especially the dairy-free version) so serve or pack from frozen and keep in a container with an icepack if storing out of the fridge.
