Procrastination & a Chocolate Craving = Figgy Choco Logs

I've been studying like crazy this weekend and loving every second of it.  Study, study, study... then it hit a craving for something sweet, something chocolate to be exact and it could not be satisfied by store bought artificial garbage.  This craving could only be satisfied by clean, whole healthy food.  Luckily I needed a break and something had to be done about this craving. STAT!

I looked into my pantry and pulled out the ingredients to produce Figgy Choco Logs.

Figgy Choco Logs


- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 1/2 cup walnuts / almonds
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut + some for rolling
- 3 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
- 6 organic Turkish figs
- 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil
- 60ml water
- pinch of salt
- 1 tbs of maple syrup (if desired)


Add all ingredients to a food processor except for the water.  Process the mix until it comes together, it'll be a bit crumbly at this stage.  Continue to mix while adding the water a little at a time until the desired consistency is reached.  It should be a little sticky and should stay together when rolled into a ball or log shape.

I scooped out tablespoon size of the mix and rolled them into log shapes in the shredded coconut.

You could eat these straight away but I think they are better refrigerated for about 20mins or so.  

Enjoy my lovelies.
