We all love chocolate (well most of us) but it usually spells DISASTER when you are trying to follow a weight loss plan or try and be that bit healthier.
But the good news is that at The Healthy Mummy, we believe in having treats in moderation and in making your own healthy treats so you know what is in them and so you limit the fat, sugar and processed ingredients in them.
Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Grease and line a slice tray.
In a small saucepan over a low heat, place the coconut oil and rice malt syrup. Stir until the coconut oil has melted. Remove from heat and let it cool.
In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs with a fork. Add the almond milk, vanilla and cooled coconut oil mixture. Gently mix together to combine.
In a large bowl sift the cocoa, coconut flour, baking powder, bicarb soda and salt. Place in the cocoa nibs and walnuts. Add in the combined wet ingredients along with the pumpkin puree and stir to combine thoroughly.
Place mixture into the slice tin and smooth down the surface.
Place in oven for 30 minutes or if a skewer poked into the slice comes out clean. Cool completely before slicing.
Serve with a dollop of chocolate mousse, a sprinkling of cocoa nibs and raspberries.
In a small sauce pan over a low heat melt the rice malt syrup and coconut oil stirring together. Set aside to cool slightly.
In a blender or food processor add the avocado, cocoa, vanilla, almond milk and salt along with the coconut oil and rice malt mixture. Blend until silky smooth and all ingredients are combined. Place mixture into a glass serving bowl and place in the fridge to cool for 2-3 hours or serve warm.
