Gluten Free Super Easy Cacao, Coconut and Buckwheat Bars

A lovely moist slab of coconut, chocolatey deliciousness


125g melted butter

1/2 cup Rice Malt Syrup

1 cup of desiccated coconut. I buy the organic brands to avoid the preservative

2/3 cup buckwheat flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 heaped tablespoon of cacao

1 egg

Pinch of salt

Adding a teaspoon of ground flaxseed (linseed) helps bind this slice together better


1/4 cup Rice Malt Syrup

1 tablespoon of cacao

50g butter

Handful of coconut to decorate


Base: Mix ingredients together and press into a lined slice tin and cook in a moderate oven for 10-15 minutes until firm to the touch.

Thermomix: chuck butter in and melt for 1 minute Speed 4 at 100 degrees. Add rest of the ingredients and mix.

Icing: Place ingredients in a saucepan on low heat and melt until well combined. Ice the base after it has cooled down and top with coconut to decorate. Cut into slices and enjoy.

Thermomix: Chuck ingredients in and cook 2 minutes speed 4 100 degrees.

  1. I know exactly the old fashioned slice you referring to, and I think this is a pretty good fructose free version. I think it’s yummy, so now I just need my husband and sons opinion!

  2. Looks great! Any advice on a dairy free version? Would you must use coconut oil in place of the better? Looking forward to trying it out!
