Ganache

  • 1/2 cup organic maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup organic unrefined coconut oil, melted 
  • 2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract 
  • 1 cup organic 100% raw cacao powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt 

Optional Layers 

  • Unsweetened nut butter 
  • 2-3 bananas, peeled and sliced thinly 

Equipment/Materials: 

  • Food processor 
  • Bread pan and parchment paper
    • OR muffin pan and liners 

Instructions:

To make the ganache, blend the syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract in a food processor until smooth. Add in the raw cacao and salt and mix thoroughly. Divide the mixture into two parts, in preparation of the layers. 

Line a bread pan with parchment paper. Pour in half of the ganache, then place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Remove from the freezer and spread a thick layer of nut butter across the hard ganache. At this point, if desired, place slices of banana across the top of the butter. Return to the freezer for an additional 10-15 minutes. Remove from the freezer and pour the rest of the ganache over the bananas. Return to the freezer until ready to serve. 

Alternatively, line a muffin pan with cupcake liners and layer the ganache, nut butter, and banana as desired, cooling each layer in the freezer.
