One of our favourite accounts for healthy eats on Instagram! The clever Jacqueline Alwill from The Brown Paper Bag in Bondi Beach has created a healthy take on rocky road that’s 100% dairy-free, gluten-free and refined sugar free.
Dairy-free, gluten-free + refined sugar free
1 ½ cups strawberries
1 tablespoon rice malt or honey
3 tablespoons I Quit Sugar gelatin powder
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup raw cacao
2 tablespoons rice malt syrup, honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/4 cup dried figs, sliced
1/4 cup hazelnuts, roughly chopped
1/4 cup dried apricots, sliced
2 tablespoons goji berries
To make the strawberry gummies for the marshmallow, place strawberries
in blender and blitz to puree, transfer to a small saucepan, add sweetener (rice malt, honey or maple syrup) and place on medium heat to warm.
Whilst puree is warming, in a separate bowl mix together gelatin and water with a fork.
It will become quite solid but don’t worry it won’t stay that way! Once strawberry puree
Is warm pour over gelatin mix and whisk together until lumps are broken up and the mix is a smooth consistency. Pour into a lined cake or loaf tin and place in fridge to set for 2 hours.
Once set, cut into cubes ready to pop into the rocky road. First make the chocolate
By melting coconut oil, add cacao, rice malt/maple/honey and orange zest and whisk until lovely and glossy.
Line a loaf or rectangular cake tin with baking paper and arrange half the figs, hazelnuts, strawberry jelly, apricots and goji berries, pour half the chocolate then repeat. Place back in the fridge to set for 2 hours, then slice and eat!
