This “after dinner mint” tasting slice is delicious, healthy and is gluten, lactose and refined sugar free.

This slice is healthy and makes you feel less guilty for having dessert! I use cacao, dates and mint essence to make a sweet, chocolate mint tasting base and maple syrup to sweeten the icing.

This base is full of fibre which is good for heart and digestive health. The icing is made with cacao which is naturally high in antioxidants.

You can serve it cold with the icing set or slice and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds for a warm brownie like consistency. Enjoy!
