ABC Nut Butter and Raw Chocolate Bark. Make your own delicious nut butter to distill the goodness and energy of nutrition-packed almonds, cashews and brazil nuts.

ABC Nut Butter
Makes approx 2 cups

1 cup raw almonds
1 cup raw brazil nuts
1 cup raw cashews
½ tsp sea salt

Preheat oven to 150°C. Spread nuts on an oven tray. Roast for 20 minutes; shake after 10 minutes. Tip onto a tray; allow to cool until just warm. (Warm nuts will blend more easily.)

Put nuts and sea salt into a food processor or high-speed blender. Process for 1 minute. Stop and scrape down the sides, then repeat until a buttery consistency is achieved. This can take anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes depending on the machine. A few drops of 
olive oil can be added to loosen the mixture.

Raw Chocolate Bark
Makes 12 slices

⅓ cup cacao butter
½ cup virgin coconut oil
½ cup raw cacao powder
4 tbsp ABC nut butter
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp pure vanilla powder
¼ cup goji berries
¼ cup pistachios, chopped
¼ cup coconut chips
2 tbsp cacao nibs

Place cacao butter and oil in a bowl; place over a bowl of boiling water. Leave to melt; remove. Stir in cacao powder, nut butter, maple syrup, vanilla and a pinch of sea salt. Keep stirring until smooth.

Line a tin (approx 25cm x 20cm) with baking paper; spoon in mixture. Sprinkle with remaining ingredients; refrigerate for 1 hour. Cut into shards. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
