How to make our Raw Chocolate & Strawberry Crunch Bars Recipe: 

1. Grease and line a 20x30cm slice pan with baking paper, leaving a 5cm overhang. To make the chocolate base, place the almonds, hazelnuts, dates, cacao powder, cacao nibs, vanilla and orange zest in a food processor with 2 tablespoons of warm water and process for 4 minutes, or until smooth. Press into the base of the tin, smooth the surface. Refrigerate until needed.

2. For the strawberry filling, drain the cashews, then place in a clean food processor with the desiccated coconut, coconut oil, maple syrup, orange juice, orange zest and freeze-dried strawberries, and blend until smooth. Add the fresh strawberries and process until very smooth. Pour over the base, smooth the surface and freeze for 1 hour.

3. Melt the chocolate and vegetable oil together until smooth. Pour over the top of the slice, set aside for 5 minutes to set. Cut the slice into squares and sprinkle with cacao nibs, goji berries and extra freeze-dried strawberries. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
