This recipe is perfect for the whole family to get involved, free from added sugar making them perfect for an after-school snack – they do however contain almonds so not so perfect for lunch boxes but save them for after school and you have yourself a winner!
I really enjoy making raw treats however I am trying to reduce the number of dates and dried fruits in my cooking. While dried fruits are yummy and also provide some health benefits of fibre and Phytonutrients they tend to be high in natural sugars – they key here is everything in moderation! and while they are delicious, 20 dates in one recipe is a little bit to much for me. This recipe is completely free from dried fruits, additives, and preservatives!

2 cups of pesticide-free almonds, activated if preferred.
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
4 tbsp peanut butter, (or preferred nut butter – almond butter would work here)
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tsp Supergreens powder (a blend of wheatgrass, barley grass, spirulina – or matcha powder if supergreens not available)
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup rice malt syrup / honey / maple syrup
1. In a food processor, roughly chop the almonds.
2. with the machine running add in the remaining ingredients and process until well combined. The mixture may look a little bit oily but this is ok, once in the fridge the mixture will harden very nicely.
3. Once the mixture is all ready to go, use your hands to push the mixture into a lined baking and place into the fridge for a couple of hours – overnight is best.
4. the next morning, using a warm sharp knife, cut into the desired sizing and enjoy!
