Rocky Road Slice

Rocky Road Slice

I would never argue with rocky road in it’s pure state. But for something a little healthier, would could be better than a cleaner rocky road sitting on top of a chocolate oaty base?

The slice is vegan, using Bare Blends Cacao & Cinnamon Plant Protein in the base and a range of boosters in the rocky road topping. To make the topping I use 85% cocoa dark chocolate to keep the sugar content down, but add a spoonful of rice malt syrup and coconut oil to help the chocolate coating set a little softer.


Feel free to get creative with what you add to the rocky road topping. I like brazil or macadamia nuts with raisins or cranberries and coconut. But you could add any combination of nuts and dried fruits that take your fancy.

* Oats naturally don't contain gluten, but as they are often processed on the same equipment as wheat, they can have traces of gluten. If you're strictly gluten-free, you can buy gluten-free oats.
