The Healthy Kitchen, known for selling high quality appliances for making raw food, has recently started selling raw treats such as cheesecake and slices. The treats are all made on-site and I was lucky enough to sample a few including an orange carrot cake and a goji berry & nut snack. The one that stood out for me was the Coconut Chocolate slice (2 slices for $12). It's made up of medjool dates, coconut, cashew flour, vanilla extract, cacao and pure maple syrup. It was so decadent and moreish, it reminded me a lot of one of my favourite candy bars, a Bounty bar. Now I just need to happen to 'pass by' again so I can get a slice of that blueberry cheesecake.
