Sometimes all you need on a Monday morning is a bit of love. This week’s recipe comes from local Mum of three, Lizzie King. Follow Lizzie’s yummy recipes on Instagram @lizzieloveshealthy and her don’t forget to check out her website.


1 Cup Cacao Butter

1/3 Cup Cacao Powder

2 tbsp Maple Syrup

½ tsp vanilla extract

½ Cup Puffed Brown Rice and/or Quinoa

2 tbsp Raisins chopped into small pieces



In a bowl sitting over a pan of barely simmering water melt the cacao butter gently. Whisk in the cacao powder and maple syrup together. Pour rice, quinoa and raisins into a bowl to combine. With small silicone chocolate moulds (Lakeland, Amazon etc sell good ones) on a baking sheet, pour in the dry mix to level with the top. With a spoon pour the chocolate mixture on top so that it reaches right to the top. Place tray in the freezer. After an hour pop them out and place in a zip-lock or airtight container. Best served straight from the freezer as soften fast.

They last weeks in there but they won’t!
