A healthy Tim Tam

Not that long ago it was the 50th anniversary for Tim Tam… Before I discovered my path to wholesome and holistic, conscious living I wouldn't have hesitated to sit down with a cuppa and a couple of tim tams but if you turn the packet over and read the ingredients you'll quickly learn why I wanted to create an alternative. 

Just as delicious but with out the guilt. Gluten free, dairy free, vegan and refined sugar free… HEAVEN. I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!

Biscuit layer 

•150 g raw nuts (I used Brazil nuts and almonds) 
•3 tbsp cocao powder 
•75 g dates 
•2 tbsp coconut oil 
•2 tbsp coconut nectar 
+ Blend until combined but so the nuts are still quite chunky. 

Ganache layer 
•1 cup of coconut cream or plain @coyo_is_coconuts yogurt 
•1/2 a pack of plain @lovingearth dark chocolate 
+ Melt on a low heat in sauce pan and stir until the chocolate is completely melted and mixed through the coconut cream or yogurt 
+ Remove from the heat and place in the fridge 
+ Line a baking tray with baking paper and make tim tam shapes out of the biscuit mix with your hand and place on the tray 
+Remove ganache layer and give it a good stir or a quick wizz in the blender to make it fluffy and put a thin layer on top of the biscuit layer 
+Place into freezer 

Chocolate coat 
•1 cup of cocoa butter 
•2 tbsp of cocoa powder 
•2 tbsp of coconut nectar 
+ Put all ingredients into a saucepan and cook on a very low heat, continuously stirring and combing as it melts 
+Once fully melted remove from heat and let cool 
+Remove biscuits from freezer and dip into the chocolate, completely covering the entire biscuit 
+Place the biscuits into the fridge to set and there you go... A healthy, conscious, delicious and guilt free alternative to a tim tam.
