Chocolate Crackle Slice


This chocolate crackle slice is a healthy alternative to the traditional version you most likely ate as a kid. With the holidays in mind (is it really December already!?), I added a few cranberries and pistachios to the recipe to give it a slight festive vibe. Unlike the kiddie version, you may remember this one is naturally gluten-free and made from all beautiful wholefood ingredients.


  • 2 cups puffed rice or puffed buckwheat
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup cranberries
  • 1/4 cup pistachios
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. maple syrup


  1. Place cashews, cacao powder, coconut oil, coconut cream, vanilla, and maple syrup in a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Stir through cranberries, pistachios, shredded coconut, and puffed rice/buckwheat
  3. Evenly spread over a small lined baking dish and allow to set in the freezer for a few hours.
