Good Morning friends, I hope this finds you well.
I wanted to re-post this favourite recipe of mine on here for you all today. It was on my old blog (a few years back) but when I transferred over to this new page it got lost ….. and that is a sad thing to happen to a yummy recipe!
This is quick, easy, healthy, homemade, gluten free, dairy free, preservative and additive free, egg free, nut free and YES …. TASTY!!!!!! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! (Perfect for the lunch box!)
2/3 cup sesame seeds – toasted (90g)
1/2 cup chia seeds (80g)
1/4 cup maple syrup (55g)
8 medjool dates (100g)
1 tblspn cacao
Place a 30cm piece of foil down on the bench and on top of that a piece of baking paper.
Place the sesame seeds and chia seeds into a food processor and blitz well. (TMX = 5 seconds speed 9)
Add the remaining ingredients and blitz again until well combined. (TMX = 10 seconds speed 8)
Place mixture onto the baking paper and using your hands form into the shape of a log.
Roll up the foil/baking paper nice and tight and fold over or twist the end (should end up looking a bit like a Christmas bon bon!)
Refrigerate for 1 hour. Cut into 1cm pieces and enjoy!
Delicious to eat as is or would be amazing as an addition to a cheese and biscuits platter!
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
Take Care of You,
