Crunchy Mint-Choc Slice

March 26, 2018 0 Comments



With raw slices all the rage, we whipped up these little morsels of delight, super easy to make and delicious, the perfect healthy treat to have tucked away in the freezer for a rainy day or for that moment of indulgence. All ingredients are completely natural with no hidden nasties. You can even perhaps switch the Cacao Powder for your 'Chocelix' of choice to boost the health benefits that little bit more, OR swop out the buckwheat for Cacao Nibs in the base.

Cacao (Immunomodulation)
Strengthening, balancing, supporting and regulating the immune system, optimising immune response (great for winter).
Cacao (Magnesium)
An essential mineral, absorbed in the gut and is important for energy, muscle health and bone health.
Cacao (Anandamide)
Is a fatty acid neurotransmitter. The name is taken from the Sanskrit word 'ananda', which means "joy, bliss, delight".
Cacao (Theobromine)
Similar to caffeine, it is a vasodilator, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, diuretic and can act as a stimulant. Studies suggest it aids the absorption of the polyphenols in Cacao.
Maple Syrup
When all other sweeteners are highly processed, we opt for either Honey (from the hive) or Maple Syrup (from the tree). If something has to be significantly processed to become something else before we consume it, then surely logic dictates that its probably not that good for you... and may be causing other health issues that your not aware of.
Honey
If you're not vegan and love honey you can reap the health benefits, including; soothes the throat, better than sugar for diabetics, anti-oxidants, helps heart health, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, helps counter pollen allergies and natural energy source.
