¾ cup melted organic coconut butter

¾ cup melted organic extra-virgin coconut oil

1 cup sifted organic carob powder

¼ cup organic raw honey

3 heaped tbsp organic hulled tahini

1½ cups desiccated coconut




Line a medium-sized square tin with baking paper and set aside.

Combine the coconut butter and coconut oil in a medium bowl. Leave to cool for a couple of minutes before adding the honey and tahini. Stir well until the honey and tahini are well mixed in. Set aside.

Whisk the sifted carob and desiccated coconut together in a medium bowl and pour in oil mixture.

Mix well, then pour into prepared tin. Use a spatula to spread evenly to create a flat top.

Refrigerate for about an hour or until completely cold and firm to the touch. Cut into 5 or 10 cm squares, depending on desired size, and store in the fridge in a sealed container.
