A Healthier Version of Swedish Mocha Squares

image

I’ve been thinking about these beautiful Swedish mocha squares that I use to love
when I was younger. Today is a bit of a cheat day so I decided to try to make a “semi” healthy version of them. Im pretty stoked with the end result.

No butter, no refined sugar, no dairy and no flour

Ingredients
Cake
6 eggs
4 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons cacao
1 teaspoon baking powder

Frosting
2 tablespoons cacao
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon cold coffee  (I use decaffeinated so the kids can enjoy them too)

Top with
Shredded coconut

How to
Pre heat the oven to 180c
In a bowl whisk your eggs and maple syrup. Add all the dry ingredients and the coconut oil. Blend it all together and let it sit for 5 minutes. Before pouring it in to a baking paper lined tray. Put in the oven and let it bake for approx 15min.

In the meantime start preparing the frosting.
Melt your coconut oil and add the other ingredients. Place your frosting in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to thicken. Remove from the fridge and whip frosting with a hand blender until thick and fluffy.

Make sure the cake is cool before putting the frosting on. The frosting will melt on a hot cake. After frosting your cake, top it with shredded coconut and cut in to squares
