Vegan Moringa Bars with Coconut Chocolate (barrinhas de moringa com chocolate e côco)

Vegan Moringa Bars with Coconut Chocolate.

As I said on previews posts I wasn’t a fan of moringa, mostly because I didn’t have found the right way to use it, plus it is also important to use a good quality product.

Moringa has an earthy taste, that can be quite strange at first, and has been used for centuries for its health benefits and is one of the most concentrated superfoods on the planet. Moringa is rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and protein.

  • 2tsp Moringa Powder
  • 1/2 cup cashews (soaked overnight )
  • 1/3 cup almonds (soaked overnight )
  • 1 + 1/2 cups shredded coconut
  • 5 tbsp maple syrup (or other liquid sweeter)
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract

Chocolate Drizzle:

  • ~100g dark chocolate
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup

Soak the nuts overnight.

Drain the nuts and rinse.

Add all the ingredients to the food processor and process on high until creamy.

shape the mixture into evenly shaped bars. Place them in the freezer while you prepare the chocolate.

Gently melt coconut oil and chocolate in a saucepan over low heat or microwave, then add the maple syrup and stir.

Dip your bars into the chocolate mixture one at a time, using a spoon to help. Then lay them out on a tray, a few centimeters apart. Then pop them in the fridge until the chocolate is completely set.

Store in the fridge or freezer in a glass container and enjoy.
