  • 200g vegan ginger nuts
  • 100g dried cranberries
  • 50g pistachios, toasted and chopped


  1. Lightly oil a 20cm square brownie tin with coconut oil and line the base with baking parchment. Melt the chocolate with the coconut oil and golden syrup in the microwave in 30-second bursts until smooth and glossy.

  2. Break the ginger nuts into small pieces in a bowl, then add the dried cranberries and pistachios. Scrape in the chocolate mixture and give everything a good mix to combine, then spoon the tiffin into the tin. Use the back of the spoon to smooth out the top and press it down, then chill in the fridge for 2 hrs or until set hard. Once set, cut into 25 mini squares. Will keep for a week in the fridge.

Wonderful recipe. Went down a treat with vegans and non-vegans alike at Christmas. I added a thin layer of dark chocolate on top and it held together really well.

Love these! I like the recipe because I was able to mix and match the fruits and nuts. I used dried apricots and dates, as well as almonds and cashews- completely not what the recipe asked for but turned out excellent! I will definitely make these again with different combinations for variety. One thing I could point out is that since these tiffins are held together with chocolate, they are a lot easier to eat if they are refrigerated to keep the chocolate solid and hold them together. Overall excellent!

I made this recipe for a party out of store cupboard things. It tasted delicious with a mix of nuts and berries. I would recommend!

I have used this recipe a couple of times. Really simple and quick to make. Today I made a cheaper version... swapping ginger nuts for own brand digestives, cranberries for currants and pistachios for sliced almonds.
