Turmeric, Maple & Ginger Slice {Raw, Vegan, Naturally Sweet}

A beautiful, easy raw slice to have in the fridge or freezer when you need a snack. 

This slice contains a wonderful combination of healthy fats, protein and carbohydrates, all with just the right level of sweetness from our new Maple Syrup. Our maple syrup is 100% naturally sweetened with no artificial colours or flavours, yum. 

Ginger and turmeric are both great supports to the immune system with anti bacterial & anti inflammatory properties, so this is a great recipe to have up your sleeve when you're not feeling your best, plus the colour just makes the day brighter!

Method

Base

  1. Add all ingredients, except the buckwheat grouts, into your food processor or blender.
  2. Pulse until well combined, you may need to stop and scrape down the sides occasionally 
  3. Once all combined add the buckinis and give it a couple of pulses to slightly combine, but you want to keep them whole to get the crunch.
  4. Once all combined, press into a lined baking dish. Evenly press the mixture out and flatten it down.
  5. Put into the freezer to set while you make the icing.

Icing

  1. Add all of the ingredients into your food processor or blender and blend until all is combined.
  2. This may take a few minutes as the oils in the sesame seeds heat up and begin to form a creamy-like texture. Stopping to scrape down the sides will be needed.
  3. When all combined, remove and spread over the crunchy base.
  4. Evenly spread and press the mixture down.
  5. When done, put back into the freezer.
  6. For best results let it set overnight, however 2-4 hours if you're in a rush. 
  7. Slice and serve when ready.

Notes 

If you don't have fresh ginger and turmeric, 1 tsp of each in their powdered should be enough. Adjust to your taste.
