Carob Cranberry Bites
3 tbsp organic carob powder | 1 ½ tbsp coconut milk | 1 tsp cinnamon | 1 tsp raw honey | 2 tbsp coconut oil melted | handful of cranberries | handful of coconut flakes
In a bowl, mix together the carob and cinnamon and then add in the coconut milk a little at a time, until well mixed. Stir through the melted coconut oil and honey. If your "chocolate" is not creamy, add a small splash more of cold coconut milk and whisk. Pour “chocolate” into your favourite silicon moulds, or over a flat tray lined with baking paper. Top with cranberries and coconut flakes then pop into the freezer until set.
VEGAN: swap the raw honey for rice malt syrup or maple syrup
**Due to the coconut oil, this chocolate melts quickly, so keep stored in the freezer**
