Chewy, chocolatey, and it comes together with no oven-time! Perfect for summer, when the thought of a hot oven is too much to handle!

15mins + chilling


  1. 1 tsp – 1 tbsp coconut oil
  2. 1 cup (160g) pitted dates
  3. 1 cup (120g) roasted macadamias
  4. ½ cup (45g) desiccated coconut plus extra for dusting
  5. 1 tsp Queen Organic Vanilla Bean Paste
  6. 2 tbsp raw cacao
  7. 1 tbsp maca powder


  1. Step 1

    Grease a loaf tin with the coconut oil and line it with baking paper so the paper extends over the long sides.

  2. Step 2

    Place all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until it comes together. It will seem very soft at this stage. You may need to stop it and scrape down the sides a few times.

  3. Step 3

    Press the mixture into the tin and flatten the top then sprinkle over the extra coconut and press it in a little.

  4. Step 4

    Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Cut into triangles and serve or store in the fridge.

Maca powder comes from the maca root – a root that belongs to the radish family. It has an earthy, nutty flavour and is said to increase energy and boost immunity.

      It is a superfood powder you can purchase at Coles or a Chemist Warehouse. It has a nutty flavour and is quite nice. Hopefully this link works
