Love Bites

Don’t let the title fool you, we’re not bitter over love, we love love. And since the last days have been under the theme love, we thought we’d share with you this classic Swedish treat called kärleksmums, which literally translated means “love nummies”. The recipe for these little bites of love comes from our cookbook (available in Finnish here and Polish here). They’re similar to a brownie only these are no-bake and made with ingredients like nuts and avocado which not only will your taste buds love but your gut will too. Try these when you’re hit by a chocolate craving and you’ll be killing two birds with one stone because you’ll also be getting a nice dose of antioxidants, fiber and healthy fats. Nummy!

Love Bites
(about 15 bites)

¾ cup soaked walnuts
¾ cup fresh dates (pitted)
3 tablespoons raw cocoa
1 tablespoon nutmeg (optional)
1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of water

1 avocado
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon cold pressed coconut oil
3 tablespoons raw cocoa
3 tablespoons honey
½  cup dried coconut flakes

Mix the batter ingredients in a food processor, it should come together and be a little sticky. Press it out as smoothly as you can in a pan or baking dish and set in the freezer.

Blend the avocado, vanilla, coconut oil, cocoa and honey into a smooth frosting(blender or food processor works). Spread over the batter layer and allow to harden slightly in the refrigerator for about 1 hour. Sprinkle with coconut flakes and cut into small squares.

Why raw cocoa?

We always try to buy raw cocoa because processed cocoa beans have usually been intensely roasted.
