These make the perfect mid-morning/afternoon snack and are super easy to make. They are rich in protein, fibre, Vitamin E and healthy fats for brain, hormones and the immune system. They are low in refined sugar due to the natural sweetness from the dates.
- 200 g raw almonds
- 100 g 85% dark chocolate
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 4 tbsp Medjool dates
- 3 tbsp desiccated coconut
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
- 4 tbsp almond butter
- 4 tbsp coconut oil
Put the almonds and chocolate in a blender and pulse until the ingredients have been mixed and moderately ground (leave some larger chunks to add texture).
Place the mixture in a bowl along with the desiccated coconut and cacao powder.
Next, blend the dates, coconut oil, almond butter and sea salt until smooth and add this wet mixture to the dry mixture combining well.
Press the mixture into a 7-inch square tin lined with baking paper and leave to set in the fridge for a couple of hours before cutting into squares and serving.
Top with a little more desiccated coconut.
