With January having such up and down weather, it is easy to get a little down. One day it is minus 40 degrees Celsius, and a few days later it is plus 7 C. It can blustery and blowing snow or raining.
The easiest way I have for making things just a little brighter, is to make a new treat! As if you didn’t already know, I love chocolate!! Here is a great walnut topped chocolate treat!!
Chocolate Walnut Squares (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Refined Sugar Free)
1 1/2 c. gluten free flour mix
3/4 tsp. xanthan gum
1/3 c. palm sugar
1/2 c. coconut oil (melted) or butter if not dairy free
1/3 c. coconut oil (melted) or butter if not dairy free
2 tsp. vanilla
3 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 c. raw cacoa or cocoa
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 c. chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all the ingredients together for the base. Pat base into a 9 by 13 inch pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, beat together eggs, coconut oil, palm sugar, vanilla, vinegar. cocoa, and sea salt.
After base has cooked for ten minutes, pour filling on top. Sprinkle walnuts evenly over top.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until filling is set. Let cool then cut into squares.
Change up the nuts if you’d like! Or don’t add any nuts at all. They freeze well!
