Chocolate Seed Roughs

We all have our moments when we are looking for something sweet to settle that craving especially when we are lacking in some energy. During these moments it is very easy to resort to blocks of chocolates or packets of biscuits which will just continue to feed that need for something sweet. Having these chocolate seed roughs in your fridge, ready and waiting will mean that during those moments you can reach for something that will give you that sweet hit you are looking for without the refined sugar but with the additional benefit of good sources of protein and fats that will keep you satisfied.


½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup pumpkin seeds
3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup


Melt the cacao powder, coconut oil and maple syrup together until smooth.

Add the seeds to the chocolate mixture and mix well.

Smooth out mixture onto a tray lined with baking paper. Place in fridge for 30 minutes to set and then break it up into bite sized pieces.

Makes 10 serves (approx.)
