Do I have any NOUGAT fans out there?

I had a craving for turkish-delight AND nougat on the weekend so I whipped up this Raw Turkish-Delight Nougat. It turned out SO amazing I just had to share with you all!

Recipe Type: GF, DF, RSF, V, Paleo

Serves 15
Time 2 hours


  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 2 heaped tbsp. 180 Nutrition Vegan Coconut Superfood (or 2 tbsp Almond meal)
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, softened
  • 2-3 drops rosewater essential oil
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup pistachios
  • 40g Homemade Chocolate (or other good quality dark chocolate)


  1. Place all ingredients except Cranberries, Pistachios and chocolate in a food processor and processes until smooth. You’ll need to stop every 30-60sec to scrape down the sides with a spatula and make sure all the bits are incorporated.
  2. Once smooth, remove the mixture from the processor and place in a bowl, stir/kneed in cranberries and pistachios.
  3. Spread the nougat mixture out evenly on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Place in freezer for 2 hours to set.
  4. Melt the chocolate slowly in bowl over some boiling water.
  5. Remove the nougat from freezer and slice into squares of desired size.
  6. Coat the squares with the melted chocolate and return to freezer to set.
  7. Try not to devour all at once!
  8. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge.
