Delight Bites

Turkish delight inspired bite sized blissfulness. This is one to play with. Taste as you go and add more raw cacao and rose water to get the right chocolate / Turkish delight balance for you. I love mine really chocolatey so always use more raw cacao, although the recipe doesn’t call for it – it’s play time!

Feeds: Makes 6 – 8 bites

Cooking time: 4 hours


  • 20g Coconut oil
  • 100g Tahini, unhulled
  • 100g Chia
  • Tsp salt
  • Tsp Stevia
  • 20g Raw cacao powder (more if you are a chocolate lover)
  • Handful crushed nuts (macadamias, pecans, almonds)
  • Tbsp rose water (add a little more if you are a turkish delight lover)
  • 20g Desiccated coconut + more to decorate


  • Line a small cake tray with baking paper
  • Add the coconut oil and tahini to a bowl and mix well
  • In a separate bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients to combine
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the coconut oil and tahini mix, it will become really thick. You can use a blender to do this but I prefer the texture when mixed by hand
  • Once the ingredients have been mixed together really well, transfer the mixture to the cake tray and press down firmly
  • Sprinkle the remaining desiccated coconut on top of the sticky mixture
  • Place the cake tray in to the freezer for at least 4 hours
  • Once set, remove the cake tray and pull out the now solid mixture by lifting the baking paper
  • Lay the solid block on a flat surface and slice in to bite size pieces
  • Refrigerate until served
