Too often we reach for processed, sugar laden & additive filled snacks when that horrid late afternoon crash kicks in. Well I've tried, tested & found the cure! Would you believe me when I tell you that this simple, yet oh so decadent fudge, packs a nutritional punch! Best believe me, because it's true! Cacao & coconut oil.. Both health gems I'm sure you've heard about which ensure that this little square keeps you going till dinner. And you've had a treat!

½ cup melted coconut oil

1 stick of good quality (organic, grass-fed) butter

½ cup unsweetened cacao / cocoa powder

a pinch of salt

3 tablespoons shredded coconut

2 tablespoon puffed brown rice (I get mine from Wellness Warehouse but can be substituted with coconut flakes, nuts, seeds or excluded)

rub with a little bit of coconut oil or butter
