Serves: 6 large bars or 12 sqaures
Ingredients
  • 20 dates, pitted
  • ⅓ cup almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup puffed rice
  • ½ cup almonds, roughly chopped
  • 100g dark chocolate (sugar free)
  • Sea salt (optional)
Instructions
  1. If dates are dry, soak in hot water for 10 minutes. Drain, then add to a food processor with almond butter and vanilla extract. Process until a paste is formed.
  2. Add puffed rice and almonds to a mixing bowl, along with the date paste. Stir well with a wooden spoon to combine. It should be a very sticky ball.
  3. Line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper and push in the mixture, smoothing over with the back of a spoon to make sure it is even.
  4. Melt chocolate in a bain marie and pour over the mixture. Set aside in the fridge to set, about 30 minutes.
  5. Cut into slices with a hot knife and sprinkle with a little sea salt.
