No bake chocolate coconut slice
Warning – no bake chocolate coconut slice is a seriously addictive recipe that is way too easy to make meaning it’s even more addictive because you can whip up another batch the second the first one is finished. Wow that was a mouthful (she says through a mouthful of choc-coconut slice).

I’m not kidding, this is good. Really good. Will didn’t like, he said it was too rich but he’s not a huge fan of any of my healthy treats. My sister loved it and I’ll say she’s a better judge of these sorts of things (no offence darling husband if you’re reading this).
My no bake chocolate coconut slice was meant to be coconut macadamia balls. When I’d processed the coconut and macadamias the mixture was way too wet to form into balls so I had to get creative with adding something dry. Of course flour was the first thing that came to mind but that wouldn’t be quite as healthy. To the pantry I went and came back with cacao and maca (I get a lot of mine from The Wholefood Collective) – perfect for adding a bit of a health boost as well as drying things out.
They were still a bit too wet to roll into balls so I pressed the mixture into a cake tin, coated it in coconut, whacked it in the fridge and hoped for the best.
A few hours later I returned and the chocolatey deliciousness had set nice and hard. It looked and smelled so amazing I may or may not have eaten a triangle before taking the first photo. I also may have trimmed the ends purely to make it look better in the photos.

I mean what’s the point of taking photos if it doesn’t taste nice?
I had to sample it and make sure it was good and for an accurate result you need a decent sample size. Yeah that’s all code for I ate a whole lot of it in one sitting.
If you make it, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Enjoy!
- 1 tbsp maca
- 1 tsp - 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 cup pitted dates
- 1 cup roasted macadamias
- ½ cup desiccated coconut plus extra for dusting
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
- 2 tbsp raw cacao
- Grease a loaf tin with the coconut oil and line it with baking paper so the paper extends over the long sides.
- Place all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until it comes together. It will seem very soft at this stage. You may need to stop it and scrape down the sides a few times.
- Press the mixture into the tin and flatten the top then sprinkle over the extra coconut and press it in a little.
- Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
- Cut into triangles and serve.
- Store in the fridge.
