Raw Coconut and Cherry Treats


  1. Place the cherries into a small saucepan and slowly heat, until they simmer for a few minutes. They will soften and become mushy. Allow to cool.Line a 7 inch square pan with baking paper.
  2. In a different sauce pan, slowly melt the coconut butter with the coconut oil. Stir in the maple syrup and vanilla.
  3. In a bowl add the desiccated coconut, pour the melted coconut mixture over the coconut and mix very well.
  4. Using 2/3 of this mixture spread it evenly over the base of the pan and press down firmly. (aprox 1 cup). With the remaining coconut mixture add the cooled cherries and mix well.
  5. Spread the cherry mixture evenly over the base layer and press down firmly. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  6. In a microwave or double boiler gently melt the chocolate.
  7. Once the slice is set, drizzle with the melted chocolate. Allow to set for another 15 minutes in the fridge.
  8. Enjoy!
  9. * Notes:You can buy coconut butter at healthfood shops or you can make your own in a high speed food processor.To make it you just need 200 grams of desiccated non sweetened coconut. Place it in the food processor and blend on high for aprox 10 minutes in total. You will need to do it in intervals and scrape down the sides as well as give your machine a rest. It will get very hot. The heat from the motor will help with coconut to process. You will know when you have the desired consistence of a thick butter. Make sure your chocolate is dark and has a high cocoa content.

It really works

I’ve been taking HH for a few months now & was sceptical that it would work so I stopped taking it. My first period not on it I was hit with a hormonal migraine. I hadn’t had one for 5 months whilst using HH. I’ve just reordered!

Just what i have been looking for...

Thank you so much for the support given to me today. Not only did the assessment provide me with vital information but the online chat was also very valuable. And it is always great when support is instant. I will defs be back to check out the other parts of this.

Highly recommend!

Can't recommend this product enough! I have been taking HH for 4 years now and it has greatly improved my quality of life through perimenopause. My four daughters also swear by it to help with endometriosis, painful periods, rebalancing hormones after pregnancy and severe mood swings. If you're considering trying HH, I suggest you go for it. The results will speak for themselves 🙂

Thank goodness for Happy Hormones

Thank you so much for your fabulous life changing products, HH, HW and HB have really helped me through this difficult and sometimes debilitating time, and the support from the team and the women is tremendous. Lifesaving literally.


Highly recommended!
