Healthy superfood bars
How often do you buy a candy bar at the supermarket? With me, it’s really a go-to snack when I’m on the go. Nice and easy and pretty healthy (right?).
- 200 g medjoul dates
- 25 g almonds
- 25 g pecan nuts
- 100 g oatmeal
- 30 g pumpkin seeds
- 25 g sunflower seeds
- 2 tablespoons broken linseed
- 3 tablespoons hemp seeds
- pinch of sea salt
- ½ tsp cardamom
- 25 g almond paste
1. Remove the seeds from the dates. Grind them in a food processor (or with your hands) to a date paste. Add a few tablespoons of water if necessary.
2. Toast the almonds and pecans in a dry frying pan for about three minutes. Then chop them finely.
3. Put the nuts together with the oatmeal, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseed, hemp seeds, sea salt, cardamom and almond paste in a large bowl.
4. Add the date paste and mix well.
5. Line a brownie baking tin or cake tin with baking paper. Spread the mixture over it. Press down well with the back of a spoon.
6. Place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours and then cut into bars.
7. Store the bars in the refrigerator or freezer.
You make 10 of these right away, which means you should be able to keep a few in the freezer for at least the next few days.
