Instructions
  1. If using frozen cherries, allow them to defrost and drain off excess moisture.
  2. Place all ingredients except the chocolate and coconut flour into a food processor and blitz until well combined. Some small lumps of cherry are fine and add to the texture of the slice.
  3. Line a loaf pan with baking paper and spoon mixture in, smoothing it with a spatula. Put the pan in the fridge while you melt the chocolate.
  4. Break the chocolate into small pieces and melt in a small bowl or jug over a saucepan of boiling water, stirring occasionally.
  5. Once it is completely melted, pour the chocolate over the cherry mixture and tilt the pan to get a thin, even coat of chocolate. Return the pan to the fridge for at least 4 hours.
  6. When ready, dust a chopping board liberally with the coconut flour, and place the slice onto the board. This will give it a slightly cakey base.
  7. Cut the slice with a hot knife into 10 equal pieces. 1 serve is 1 piece.
  8. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months.
