HEMP CHIA ALMOND BARS
Makes 16 bars
Gluten free : Dairy Free : Vegan
1 cup (80g) shredded coconut
1/2 cup (90g) hemp seeds
3 tablespoons (52g) chia seeds
1 cup (225g) almonds
1/2 cup (68g) walnuts
2 cups (350g) fresh dates, seeds removed
1 tablespoon (20ml) vanilla extract
1/4 cup (62ml) melted coconut oil
Place coconut, hemp, chia, almonds and walnuts in a food processor and blitz briefly. Try to have a few chunks of the nuts remaining for some solid crunch in the bars. Transfer to a large bowl then add dates, vanilla and coconut oil to the food processor and blitz until a paste forms. Transfer to bowl with the dry ingredients and using your hands bring all the ingredients together to form a dough. Line a 14 cm x 22 cm rectangular baking dish or loaf tin (or thereabouts) with greaseproof paper, spread the ingredients into the dish and press out to the edges firmly. Place in freezer to set for 2-3 hours. Slice into pieces and store in the fridge up to 3 weeks.
