The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

No equipment required! Which means less dishes to clean, which is always a good thing!

These raw chocolate haystacks are awesome. I like to store them in the fridge for quick sugar fixes. These haystacks are probably one of my top 5 favourite recipes because they are really quick and really good! 

Best served cold, straight-out of the fridge because coconut oil will liquify again once warm. (Note: you can freeze them for longer storage, but they are moist and much better when refrigerated rather than frozen.)

To get the white-coconut effect as seen in the picture, roll your finished haystacks in some additional shredded coconut before freezing.

I haven't tried this recipe with honey yet, but since honey is sweeter than maple syrup I would reduce the amount a bit

Is using the carob as a chocolate sub an equal exchange?

Hi Nicole, since carob has a weaker flavor than cocoa you could maybe add 1.5 times more carob. Example: 1 cup cocoa = 1.5 cups carob
