Unsung Super Foods – Vegan Chocolate & Prune Slice

Share the Goodness

Loaded with sweet prune and chocolate goodness, this vegan chocolate& prune slice is an easy to make sticky treat made better with prunes.

The poor old prune. A good source of iron, low in fat, high in antioxidants and fibre and it is dismissed as the embarrassing cousin of the sweet date. Prunes, or dried plums if you please, are delicious, juicy and a nice change from the super sweet date. Also, they are half the price. And let’s be honest, they will keep you regular. This vegan chocolate & prune slice is chocolatey and delicious; they won’t even know the prunes are in there.

Vegan Chocolate & Prune Slice

Author Logan

Ingredients

Base

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbs melted coconut oil
  • 3 tbs maple syrup
  • 3 tbs waterChocolate Layer
  • 400 g pitted prunes
  • 4 tbs good quality cocoa
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • pinch sea salt
  • 2 tbs waterTop
  • desiccated coconut

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 175 degrees C.
  • Line a 8x8 slice pan with baking paper or parchment.
  • Combine all base ingredients into a food processor and blitz until combined and the mix sticks together. Press the mix firmly and evenly in to the slice tray.
  • Clean out processor and add all chocolate layer ingredients to the now clean bowl. Blitz until combined and spread evenly over base layer.
  • The mix is sticky so I use a wet fork to wrestle it into submission. Sprinkle enough coconut to cover the slice all over.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. To toast the coconut top layer, pop the slice under the broiler for a minute or two to toast.
  • Remove from oven and let the slice rest for 10 minutes for cutting to serve.

Just made this tonight and it’s delicious! I melted some dark chocolate and scattered it over the slice as well and it turned out great. Hard to believe it’s so healthy as well

I just made this recipe. It is the first time using prunes for me. I didn’t soak them and put the ingredients in the food prcessor. Now my food processor is spoilt and as the prunes won’t puree and I don’t even know how to fix the recipe because all the ingredients are mixed in and the prunes are dry and hard. Very sad. You should have mentioned in your blog that the prunes have to be soaked in hot water forat keast 20 minutes first.

Hi Amanda, these look delicious. What could I use instead of coconut oil? Would olive oil work? Thanks, Priya

I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I
never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you
did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
