Spiced Fig, Chocolate and Almond Slice

GF, Vegan.

Ingredients:

 Method:

  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius. 

  • Line a banana bread size baking dish with baking paper. 
  • Cut the small tough stalk from the figs, keeping the fruit whole. 
  • Combine almonds, figs, buckwheat flour, cacao, cinnamon, nutmeg & salt in a large bowl. 
  • Gently melt chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. 
  • In a separate saucepan melt the coconut sugar & rice malt syrup over a  low heat for 10 mins, until sugar has dissolved. 
  • Pour the melted chocolate and syrup mixture over the dried ingredients  and mix well. This can be hard work. 
  • You should end up with a stiff, slightly sticky mass. spoon into the  prepared baking dish and use wet hands to smooth over. 
  • Bake for 25 - 30 mins, or until it is dry but still yields to touch the  top. it will seem rather underdone; however the slice will continue to  cook and firm up once out of the oven. 
  • Allow to cool completely, which may take several hours. 
  • Store covered in the fridge and slice into 3mm slices when needed. Let sit unrefrigerated for 5 minutes prior to slicing to make it easier. This will last in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
