    i tried the non thermomix recipe and it looked terribly runny in the bowl.
    i double checked i had the right measurements 1/4c of self raising flour etc and decided to weigh my flour (as i do normally bake using weight) a 1/4 cup weighed only 33grams! :(ReplyCancel

      Oh no Tiffany! I hope it works better for you next time.:)ReplyCancel

I gave my pantry a good clean out on the weekend and found some dried fruit and oatbran that I wanted to use up. You know me, I am loving having some healthy balls and slice on hand so I created this little recipe. If I had the patience on this day I would of […]

    Hi Katrina!

    What a lovely, healthy recipe! Are you able to advise approximately how many pieces this recipe makes?

    Thanks so much!


    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Ooh Amy, I can’t remember exactly and I didn’t slice them up equally but you could easily get 18 little piecesReplyCancel

Recently I have been watching the food I have been snacking on. I still have a few more kilo’s to lose to reach my goal so I am making sure I have something reasonably healthy in my fridge to satisfy my 4pm sweet craving. I am so excited to share with you thisRaw Chocolate & […]

    Made the choc coffee bites this afternoon…great healthy snack Katrina.
    Am thinking the mixture could also work great made into balls (might have to chill mixture in fridge first) and rolled in coconut.
    Thanks for sharing :-)ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      ooh yum Amanda that sounds so good, great idea!ReplyCancel

  • Hi Katrina, I made this today – it’s till in the fridge waiting to cut up.

  • Kelly Holliday

    would you replace the walnuts with more almonds to make it nut free?ReplyCancel

    would you replace the walnuts with more almonds to make it nut free?ReplyCancel

  • Katrina

    What a great idea, Kelly!ReplyCancel

    • Kelly

      So i made it but its a crumbly mess, i can still save it. Just wondering. i left the coffee out as i’m making it for the kids, 1tbs of instant coffee was that liquid or powder?ReplyCancel

      • Katrina

        Oh no Kelly, I used coffee powder and really pressed it well into the container and left it in the fridge, sometimes I have left it all day before I slice it, perhaps you may need to leave it longer??ReplyCancel

        • Kelly Holliday

          will do, i’ve packed it harder and i’ll leave it 24hrs.ReplyCancel

          • Katrina

            Let me know how it turns out :)

          • kelly

            i must have done something wrong because its still way crumbly, or perhaps the walnuts were needed? i only used almonds (added extra to make up for no walnuts). Maybe i needed more dates. I think i’ll try again another day. But now i have quite a tasty crumble, i think i’ll make some banana ice cream and use it as a topping. :) thanks

  • Kim Fairfull

    Could you leave the dates outReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      No Kim the dates are a really important element of the bites, helps to combine it all together.ReplyCancel

    I just made these, it’s still chilling but the crumbs were delicious! Got treats for the in-laws who are staying for the weekend sorted now thank you!ReplyCancel

  • House of Nicnax

    Oh yum! These look delicious! Raw food is something that really interests me. I’m not brave enough to try to make any thing too complicated, but these seem easy enough! And to be truthful – you had me at “coffee” ! I think i’ll make these this week! Thanks for the recipe!

  • Carol

    Kat, I made these last week and wasnt that thrilled with the taste of the walnuts – remembered I dont really like the flavour AFTER I made them! I just made them last night again with roasted hazelnuts instead and they are delicious! I tried making into balls and they were a bit dry so I added a small amount of condensed milk. I think next time I could try just some water to see if that is enough to ‘glue’ together. Also loved the apricot and the lemon balls. Thanks!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      That’s great, Carol. Yes i guess you can add any flavour nut, hazelnuts do sound very nice too.ReplyCancel

    Sounds delish, however please be aware these CONTAIN NUTS (Nutella ) , so wouldn’t be recommended for school lunchboxesReplyCancel

  • Kate

    Am I missing something? Where are the smuggled vegetables in this recipe?ReplyCancel

  • Lisa

    My daughter is nut free with very serious allergies. This recipe looks great but would suggest replacing the Nutella with a product called Smudge made by Freedom Foods. It is nut, gluten and dairy free and obviously you are going to lose the smuggled goodness of nuts, but at least they will be lunchbox friendly.ReplyCancel

    • That’s a great suggestions Lisa, I will look into Smudge!

    Sounds very yummy, thanks for the recipe :) I have printed it out and stuck it in my recipe book ready to try.ReplyCancel

    • Liz @ eudora

      So glad to hear. Did you enjoy them?ReplyCancel

  • Danielle

    Wow, this sounds delicious! How long should we freeze them for, and do you then store them in the fridge – or keep them in the freezer? Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

    • Hi Danielle, Tammy has commented on here suggesting that you leave them in the freezer until they are ready to eat and leave the ones you won’t eat in the freezer.ReplyCancel

    • LIz @ Eudora

      Sorry I didn’t check back here sooner but exactly what Kat said. I hope you enjoyed them :)ReplyCancel

  • Tammy

    I have this in the freezer right now – not sure how long to freeze it for though!ReplyCancel

    • Liz @ Eudora

      Not long at all, about 20mins. You don’t want the chocolate to hard to bite into. I hope you enjoyed them :)ReplyCancel

  • Tammy

    Just read this on FaceBook:

    Freeze them until set. You can remove them from freezer for about an hour before serving them so they are not to hard to bite into. But only take out of the freezer what you are going to consume as the banana can go a little yucky if left to longReplyCancel

    • thanks for the info Tammy, did your family enjoy them?ReplyCancel

    • Liz@eudora

      Hi Tammy, I only just checked the comments for my recipe. You are right – freeze them until set. And the banana does go yucky so only put out what you are going to consume. Thanks for letting everyone else know :)ReplyCancel

  • Amy

    What can I sub in for the honey that wouldn’t be too overpowering, can’t have agave either.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Amy, have you tried using Maple Syrup? I would try giving that a go as it is still reasonably healthy.ReplyCancel

    I made this slice this morning and the smell was delicious it took me back to the school fete days! yummy.ReplyCancel

    What size mars bars and chocolate melts we are in Canada sizes would be great, thanks.

  • Mel

    You could basically set any slice into individual muffin sizes. I set cheese cake in muffin tins. Great idea that is. My eldest is finally off to preschool this year, and I’m liking that idea. Tomorrow is my cooking day. I best fine my mini muffin tinsReplyCancel

  • Amanda

    A couple of weeks ago I made Mars Bar Slice (think it was same recipe as this but without the extra choc) – for a change I just put spoonfuls into small truffle patty cases and sprinkled with 100’s and 1000’s then set in fridge. The kids loved them and they were a good snack size for a treat.ReplyCancel

    • That’s a cute idea, I had some today and cut off the choc tops, was still really yummy without the chocolate.ReplyCancel
