Origin: Peru

Our raw cacao powder is organically grown in the Satipio province of the Junín Region, located in the central Amazon rainforest of Peru, as it has been for thousands of years by the native Ashaninka and Chene people.

Heirloom ‘Criollo’ Cacao

The beans are of the renowned heritage heirloom ‘Criollo’ variety, which make up less than 1% of cacao grown each year.

Raw and unprocessed

Unlike traditionally processed cocoa powder, which is often extract with chemical solvents and heated to over 150°C, our raw cacao powder is minimally processed at low temperatures, resulting in far superior nutritional qualities.

Recipes with Organic Raw Peruvian Cacao

Raw Cacao Peanut Butter Slice

Raw Cacao Peanut Butter Slice

close
ingredients
  • 1/2 cup raw nuts
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup Bare Blends Organic Raw Cacao WPI or Cacao & Cinnamon Plant Protein
  • 2 x 20ml tablespoons Bare Blends Organic Raw Peruvian Cacao
  • 2 x 20ml tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 2 x 20ml tablespoons rice malt syrup (or pure maple syrup or honey)
  • 1/3 cup natural smooth peanut butter*
  • 2 x 20ml tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil, melted
  • Pinch of sea salt
directions

1. Line a 10 x 16cm container with baking paper or cling film. 2. To make the base, process the nuts, coconut, protein powder and cacao powder together in a food processor until you get fine crumbs. Add the coconut oil and rice malt syrup and mix until everything is well combined. Press the mixture firmly into the prepared container and set aside in the fridge. 3. To make the topping, mix all of the topping ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined. Spread the mixture over the base, then put the container back into the fridge for a few hours until set. 4. Once set, remove the slice from the container and cut into pieces with a sharp knife. Store in the fridge or freezer. * It’s best to use a natural peanut butter that contains peanuts only.

Refridgerate for 1 hour to allow the balls to set These balls can be stored in the fridge for 5 days.

Raw Choc Berry Yo-Yos

Raw Choc Berry Yo-Yos

close
ingredients
  • 1/2 cup raw cashew nuts
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 2 x 20ml tablespoons Bare Berries
  • 2 x 20ml tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
  • 2 x 20ml tablespoons coconut flour
directions

1. To make the cookies, process all of the cookie ingredients in a food processor until the mixture comes together. 2. Line a tray with baking paper. Divide the mixture into 8 balls and press onto the baking tray to make cookie shapes. Set aside in the freezer to set. 3. To make the chocolate filling, mix all of the filling ingredients together in a bowl until you get a smooth paste. You will need to slowly work the syrup and oil into the powders - it will take a bit of time to combine. I find it best to work the mixture together by continuously squashing it against the side of the bowl using the back of the spoon. 4. Remove the cookies from the freezer. Divide the chocolate filling into 4 balls and press each ball onto a cookie. Top each one with another cookie, pressing together. Store in the fridge or freezer.
