Recipe by Brit Woodruff

Ingredients:

  • 150g of dates 

  • 30g cashews 

  • 30g pecans

  • 80g Dark Choc granola

  • 3 tbsp cacao powder 

  • 90ml coconut oil (melted)

  • 40g of raisins 

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

Crush the nuts slightly then roast in the oven for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile soak the dates in warm water to soften for 5 minutes. 

Drain the dates and add them to the food processor along with the cacao powder and the melted coconut cil. Blitz until all combined, the mixture will be quite thick.

In a bowl add the date mixture, granola, roasted nuts and raisins and mix until evenly distributed.

Line a baking tin with baking paper, and press the mixture down until compact. I sprinkled and pressed some extra nuts into the top.

Freeze for 1 hour then cut into pieces and enjoy!
