Homemade Fruit + Nut Block Chocolate


My husband and I are big chocolate lovers, so we often enjoy a square or two after dinner. Isabella adores her dried fruit (such as raisins and cranberries) so I thought I’d give homemade ‘chocolate’ a whirl using simple staple pantry ingredients.

The result…a lush, rich treat to store in the fridge and enjoy in small slices when required!

Homemade Fruit + Nut Block Chocolate ~gluten-free, dairy-free

  • 1 cup coconut oil, I use Tanna Farms

  • 1 Tbspn honey (or pure maple syrup)

  • Heaped ½ cup good quality cocoa powder or raw cacao powder

  • Heaped ½ cup mixed dried fruit (I used raisins, cranberries, chopped dried apricots and banana. This mix also had small chunks of white chocolate – bonus!

  • ½ cup desiccated coconut

  • ½ cup walnuts (or other nuts of your choice such as almonds, cashews or peanuts)

  1. Melt the coconut oil and honey in a saucepan over a low heat.

  2. Remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder until combined. Next add in the dried fruit and nuts and mix through.

  3. Pour the mixture into a baking paper lined brownie tin and spread out evenly. Place in the fridge until set. Remove and slice into small pieces and store in the fridge.

  4. Enjoy!
