Chocolate Berry Slice


Everywhere you see raw, no bake and vegan slices and they all look stunning, perfect and most importantly, delicious! I have a few raw slices here on my blog but wanted to try a different flavour combo made up of 3 layers, so this Chocolate Berry Slice was born! This beauty is completely gluten free, vegan and no bake, can i get a hallelujah?! Consisting of a raw crust base, homemade mixed berry/chia seed jam and a decadent white chocolate and coconut crunch topping. I loved the topping i created for my Chocolate Coated Crunch Slice so much so that of course i had to make it the topping for this healthy slice.


Let’s talk about jam for a moment. How great is jam?! Especially the homemade kind that is free from refined sugar and any of those nasty additives you may find in store bought jam. What will also work for the middle jam layer is a pre-made organic berry jam. Simply add the required amount into a small mixing bowl and add the desiccated coconut. The coconut with thicken and add crunch, tasty!

When i think of this slice i think:

Gluten free
No bake


To be honest, i think that many raw treats can taste the same due to the popular ingredients that are always used to make them. These include dates, nuts, coconut, cacao, honey and maple syrup. I wanted to change that for this particular slice so i opted for brazil nuts in the base. Brazil nuts are nutty and slightly bitter so if you’re not used to their distinctive flavour, you can simply use half a cup of the brazil nuts and use almond nuts for the remaining half a cup. Let’s not forget the amazing pairing of berry jam and white chocolate…. surely that is enough to get you to try this for yourself!

* When i made this slice i used 1 full cup of brazil nuts. They are slightly bitter and have a distinctive flavour to them. If you don’t enjoy brazil nuts you can simply use half a cup of brazil nuts and half a cup of almonds.



    1. Hi Salena, yes they do! Just make sure to allow enough time for them to thaw out back to room temperature prior to consumption as the chocolate will be quite solid, hope this helps! xx

  1. Amazing recipe! Any suggestion on cutting it though? The chocolate kept splitting, while the jam layer pushed out whenever I tried to cut it nicely.

    1. Hi Heather, try adding more coconut oil to the chocolate whilst it’s melting, this will make it softer when it sets. Also, i like to leave mine out in room temperature for around 10 minutes or so to let it soften to make it easier to slice through. I warm sharp knife will make it easier too. Hope this helps! x

  2. HI just wondering how many almonds as Im not sure if I can’t read or its not in the list if ingredients. Im assuming 1 cup as well

    1. Hi trudi! Thanks for bringing this to my attention. There is not meant to be any almond in the recipe, please refer to the notes if you wish to replace the brazil nuts with almonds. Thanks x
