This healthier version of rocky road looks and tastes incredible! It’s sweetened with natural Medjool dates, is refined-sugar free and full of good fats from the coconut oil, making it a satiating but decadent treat. Get creative with the additions too. Try anything from white mulberries, to goji berries, coconut and your favourite nuts and seeds.


Makes: 9 slices

  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 5-6 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free granola or puffed brown rice
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup mixed raw nuts, chopped (I used hazelnut and pistachios)
  • 1/4 cup goji berries



  1. Place the coconut oil, cacao powder, dates, cinnamon and sea salt in a food processor. Blitz until smooth.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the granola or puffed brown rice, shredded coconut, mixed nuts and goji berries. Pour over the cacao-coconut mixture and stir to combine.
  3. Spoon the mixture into a lined baking dish and place in the freezer to set for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from freezer and slice. Enjoy immediately. This rocky road keeps in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
