Choco Health Bars

IMG_0655 2

Mia’s Auntie saw a similar recipe to this online and sent it to us.  We adapted it for our tastebuds and it was really quick and easy to make.  They taste very ‘healthy’ and I would say are for more grown up tastebuds.  I am going to try to adapt the recipe further to make them suitable for little ones too, but they are well worth a try and can be frozen.

 

Ingredients:

250g Chopped Dates

100g Raw Cashew Nuts

100g Desiccated Coconut

3 x heaped tbsp Peanut Butter (we used one without added sugar)

2 1/2 x tbsp Cocoa Powder

 

Method:

  1. Put all of the ingredients together in a blender and put on full power until it starts to stick together.
  2. Add more peanut butter if it isn’t sticking.
  3. My blender wasn’t big enough to do the whole amount in one go!
  4. Cover a baking tray in greaseproof paper and put the cocoa mixture onto the paper.
  5. Press down hard so it all sticks together, using roughly half of the tray and squish it all together.
  6. Pop it in the fridge for half an hour and then cut to size

 

We also think it’d be nice with apricots, cherries and maybe using cashew butter too.

Enjoy! x
