I can’t remember where I got the original recipe for this from but it’s become a regular after school snack in our house, everyone loves it. It’s so healthy that the you don’t feel bad if the kids pig out on it, and it’s so good that they will!
It’s also incredibly easy to make with very few ingredients that I now know it off by heart – so here it is:
- 1 cup of dates
- 1 cup of mixed nuts – I usually use almonds, cashews or walnuts – whatever I have in the house.
- 1 Tbsp of Chia Seeds
- 2 Tbsps of Coconut Oil
- A splash of Vanilla Essence if you want
Chuck all the ingredients in the food processer and whiz till it’s a fairly consistent texture, no big bits anywhere. Press into a lined tin and freeze. Take out a couple of hours later and cut up. It does need to be kept in the freezer, as it gets pretty crumbly when thawed to room temperature. you could take it out 15 – 20 mins before eating, otherwise my kids love it straight from the freezer!
