Airdried fruit is the best

Choc-chilli mango haystacks

Food is not my usual blog topic, but I couldn’t resist sharing these quick healthy treats with you. Today I had to take a dessert a friend’s house for lunch. This was an opportunity to spread the word about the wonderful air dried fruit my brother and his wife produce. For this recipe I used their airdried mango, kiwi fruit and papaya. The health benefit airdried fruit is that they don’t use sulphur dioxide in the drying process.

To the finely chopped dried fruit I also added shredded coconut. This was then mixed into,2 blocks of melted dark chocolate. I then spooned small haystacks onto a lined tray and topped with lime zest, chilli flakes and coarse sea salt before refrigerating for 30 minutes. This made 12 stacks. They transported really well.

I found the recipe in Ellie Bullen’s book The Global Vegan.
