HIGH ENERGY DATE + SEED CHOCOLATE BARS

Updated: Mar 20

These are awesome to have in the freezer or fridge for when you need a little pick me up or the children start bleating some bizarre hunger noises. Packed full of seeds and slow release energy, they go a long way.



Ingredients - makes 12 bars

300g pitted dates - or 2 cups

150g mixed seeds - or 1 cup (sunflower/pumpkin)

75g oats - or 1 cup

40g desiccated coconut - or 1/2 cup

2 tablespoons Cocoa powder

Maldon Sea salt pinch


Top with:

200g dark chocolate

1 tablespoon coconut oil or butter

Extra pinch of sea salt



Method:


1. Soak the dates in a bowl with boiling water.

2. Meanwhile blend the oats, seeds, coconut & cocoa powder in a blender. Blend it fine or leave it coarse for more texture if you prefer.

3. Drain the dates and add them to the blender.

4. Blend until it looks like a thick paste. If it looks dry add a dash of hot water and blend again.

5. Spread the mix into a parchment lined tin.

6. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil or butter together in the microwave or in a bowl over simmering water. Then divide between the loaf tins.

7. Set in the fridge for 1 hour then cut into bars or squares.


Keep in the fridge for 1 week or freeze - if you can keep them that long.
