Coconut Ginger Slice

I created these as a way to increase the amount of coconut oil in my diet. There are a lot of similar recipes on the internet that are flavoured with chocolate. But I wanted something without the chocolate compromise.
These have a warm ginger hit. Ease back on the quantity of fresh ginger if you don’t love ginger.

1 cup dessicated coconut
1/4 cup coconut flour
6 tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons raw honey
1/4 cup raisens
Juice from 1/2 a lime or lemon
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
3 cm fresh ginger peeled and grated

Cut raisens into small pieces.
In a double boiler gently melt the coconut oil and honey.
Once oil and honey are liquid add remaining ingrediants and mix well.
Dump mixture onto a small baking tray that is covered with baking paper.DSC00647
