  • 1 cup almonds
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup carob powder
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • 2 cups cashews
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 2 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 cup coconut nectar or 1/2 cup maple syrup and 1/4 cup xylitol
  • 1 1/2 cups cacao butter grated
  • 2 cups cacao powder


  • 5 tbsp cacao butter melted
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 tbsp coconut nectar or honey
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup water



  • First process nuts, cinnamon, salt and carob powder into small crumbs.
  • Add dates, coconut oil and vanilla extract and process again.
  • Press into the bottom of 9" square pan and place in fridge whilst working on the filling and marbling mixture.


  • Before making this chocolate filling, you should place the grated cacao butter in the dehydrator to melt. Alternatively you can melt it in a bowl over another bowl of hot water.
  • Mix the cashews, orange juice, orange zest, vanilla, and coconut nectar (or maple syrup plus xylitol) in a Vitamix until smooth.
  • Add cacao butter and cacao powder, and blend again.


  • Mix all ingredients in a high-power blender until completely smooth.


  • Pour the filling onto the crust and use a spatula to achieve a level surface.
  • Drizzle the marbling mixture over the top in lines using a plastic bottle or a spoon. Drag a toothpick across the top to create the marble effect.
