Method

  • Preheat oven to 150C
  • In a food processor place the oats and desiccated coconut. Pulse until a fine powder is formed.
  • Add in all remaining ingredients except the cocoa and water and blend until a dough forms.
  • Remove the mixture and place half in a small mixing bowl.
  • Add the cocoa and water to half the mixture, stirring until well combined. (Should be doughy in texture!)

  • Place the other half of the mixture between another two sheets of baking paper and roll into the same shape and size.
  • Peel off the top layer of baking paper on the two sets of dough.
  • Place the chocolate dough directly on top of the plain dough.
