Aaaaah! Obsessed with the raw food situation??
These are snacky bite size nuggets, packed with loads of amazing seeds…chia (WE LOVE CHIA), hemp seeds, dates, raw cacao…oats!!!!!!! Cooooooome on, they are delicious 😉
Before I get to the really REALLY easy recipe, let’s focus on Hemp.
This ancient food can be traced back thousands of years to Chinese, Egyptian, Persian and other cultures, where it was revered as a complete food source. At 35% protien content, shelled hemp seeds are the answer for anyone lookin for a raw, vegan or organic complete protein source. They also contain a wide array of nutrients, antioxidants and fiber. Hemp has been long overlooked as a superfood for its misunderstood association with marijuana. Hemp seeds do not contain THC.
Ok! Now that we are all a bit more educated, onto the recipe.
100g dates, pitted
4 TBSP of boiling water
160g of gluten free oats or rice flakes or quinoa flakes
40g raw hemp seeds
3 TBSP of melted coconut oil
2 TBSP raw cacao powder
2 TBSP rice syrup
In a food processor, blend the dates and hot water until it’s thick and sticky.
In a bowl, mix the oat/flakes, hemp, chia, coconut, cacao, rice syrup
Add the date mix and combine all ingredients until thoroughly coated.
Shape into balls in your hands, or if you want to cut into bars, double the recipe and set into a lined baking tray. Leave in the fridge for 1 hour and cut into bars.
Wether balls or bars, they can be kept in the refrigerator, covered, for up to two weeks.
