Low Fodmap Raw Vegan, Organic Choc Mint Protein Slice
I wanted to put a refreshing, minty twist on some of my other chocolate slice and bar recipes. I also wanted to up the vegan protein content of these raw vegan treats. The results were this seriously delicious, Low Fodmap Raw Vegan, Organic Choc Mint Protein Slice.
In this recipe I used an organic rice protein powder, and my personal choice is to use the EZY Protein, unflavoured organic rice protein powder. EZY Protein use Australia grown rice and also measure the arsenic levels in the product.
I also always choose to use Pure Harvest’s Rice Bran Syrup. Although not made in Australia, Pure Harvest have personally ensured me that they constantly measure the arsenic content in their rice bran syrup.

1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
2 tablespoons of sunflower seeds
3 tablespoons of Power Super Foods Cacao Powder
Half a teaspoon of organic Peppermint Flavour

First, mix together all the dry ingredients in a large glass or stainless steel bowl.
Then, in a smaller glass bowl, whisk together the peppermint oil and the slightly warmed coconut oil and rice bran syrup.
Keep whisking while pouring the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Combine thoroughly with a spoon, until all the dry ingredients are evenly coated with the wet.
Next, press the mixture down very firmly and evenly into a large, baking paper lined, rectangular glass Pyrex dish, or you can use a safe, polypropylene, Tupperware container.
Put your slice into the fridge to set for at least 5 hours before slicing with a sharp serrated knife.
