Chocolate Biscuit Slice (Paleo, Clean Eating)

IMG_1040 (640x427)I spotted this recipe and can’t resist playing around with it. Biscuit? Chocolate? It reminded me of my favourite “digestive biscuits” from Marks and Spencer topped with dark chocolate. I wondered why are they called digestive anyway? Turns out that they contain a form of salt to help break down starch in our gut better. (thanks wikipedia!)

Since this do not contain any starch, I guess our gut is safe! The texture is not similar to the biscuit that I like BUT the taste though, brought me back to the feeling of eating this biscuit. Slight crunch, with the sweetness of chocolate. A wonderful combination with no refined sugar to boot.
