Energy Slice


What you need:

- 2tbsp coconut oil

- 200-250g cashew butter (but any nut butter works)

- 9 medjool dates (soak in hot water, while preparing everything else - 10 minutes is perfect)

- 1 cup of quinoa puffs (or any other grainy puffs you can find)

- 1/3 cup of pumpkin seeds

- 1/3 cup of sunflower seeds

- 1/4 cup of hemp seeds

- 1/4 cup of shredded coconut

- 1 heaped tbsp of green smoothie powder or protein powder (optional)

- 1/2 tsp of cinnamon (optional)

- 1/2 tsp of vanilla (optional)

Chocolate Topping:

- 2 tbsp of coconut oil

- 1 tbsp of cashew butter (or any other)

- 1 tbsp of agave syrup (or rice or maple or honey)

- 2 tbsp of cacao powder

OR:

use a 80g block of chocolate (i love using the Vivant 75% sweetened with coconut sugar), and melt with a splash of milk (2 tbsp of oat milk or any other milk) - stir until melted, then pour over the already cooled mixture


DIRECTIONS:

1) First drain, then mash all dates with a fork until it looks relatively smooth (this is hard work, but it pays off, trust me!)

2) In the meantime you can melt the coconut oil with the nut butter on very low heat

3) Then add in the dates, and mix in well

4) Mix all other ingredients in a bowl and stir well before adding it into the creamy date mixture -

5) Stir well

6) Line a baking tray and pour in the mixture

7) Spread out evenly and put into the fridge/freezer

8) While the mixture cools down in the fridge, you can start preparing the chocolate

9) Put all wet ingredients into a pot on low heat (again on 1-2 on an electric stove)

10) When combined, take it off the stove and add the cacao powder - stir until combined

11) Pour on top of the Slice mixture and put it back in the fridge for around 1-2 hours, or in the freezer for 1/2 hour if you can't wait to try them

ENJOY

p.s.: you do not need all the same ingredients - if you only have one type of seeds, you can use those only, or do half seeds, half nuts, etc. you can be creative here :)
