This is another one I make regularly, the kids love it and it’s so healthy I don’t mind them having loads of it. And best thing is it’s sugar free!!! The kids can’t get enough of it which is just fine with me cos it’s a super food snack, full of loads of the good stuff including nuts, chia seeds, coconut oil and cacao.
So I started with my good old faithful, never fail Nutty Chia Slice, but this time I pressed it into a 12 muffin tray:
- 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
Chuck all the ingredients in the food processer and whiz till it’s a fairly consistent texture, no big bits anywhere. Press into a 12 muffin tray and pop into freezer for about an hour.
Cacao Chocolate Top
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
Heat the coconut oil in a pot until it’s a liquid then take off the element. Mix in the cacao powder using a whisk, and keep mixing until dissolved. Pour on top of the each base, trying to keep the amounts even. Pop back in the freezer to set for about an hour.
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!
