I’m all for making life easy, so if you’re on the same boat, this is the perfect recipe for you! I’m almost giving you two recipes in one because you can make the chocolate ‘crumble’ into energy bars/balls and you can also use it to make this wonderful treat!

I’m afraid there’s no video for this, but I did put up a video of my super easy overnight oats today so you can check that out here!

The recipe below will show you how to make the raw chocolate crumble, which you can make into energy bars for the week, but for an extra special treat, you can form them into these cute parfaits which are the perfect balance of sweet and creamy – you won’t believe there’s nothing bad in them!

1 cup dates
1 1/2 cup nuts (I like pecans, walnuts, almonds or cashews or a blend of 2 nuts)
2 tbsp cacao powder
Zest of 1/2 orange
1 tbsp cacao nibs (optional)
Coconut yoghurt
Cherries

In a food processor, pulse the dates, nuts, cacao powder and orange together until combined and the dates have become smooth (it’s ok if there are a few nut chunks in there).

If using cacao nibs, add now and stir into the mixture.

Press the date and nut mixture into a pan (to form bars) or roll into balls and place in the fridge for at least and hour.

When the bars have set, you can start making your parfait.

Pit and half the cherries and place them in a jar making layers with the yoghurt and crumbling the cacao nut bars.

Serve immediately.

So I’ve been super busy this week but this weekend has been super nice to unwind – I went out for lunch with my friend yesterday at Le Pain Quotidien (SO good!) and off to Brighton today which will be nice! I’ve also got like a bajillion updates to tell you about but I’ll leave that for Tuesday! (cliffhanger!)
