Gubinge is an incredible superfood, native to us here in Australia. Also known as Kakadu Plum, it is recognised as the highest source of Vitamin C in the world! Maggie has created this recipe to ensure we can all get some Gubinge in our diets, however if it is too tricky to find, please know that this delicious dark chocolate and fruit treat will still offer plenty of health benefits even if you leave the Gubinge powder out. We think it makes a beautiful gift idea for Christmas too, broken into pieces and hand wrapped.
WHAT YOU NEED
620g good quality dark chocolate
83g coconut oil
100g toasted pumpkin seeds, finely chopped
100g toasted sunflower seeds, finely chopped

170g flaked almonds, toasted & finely chopped
