SUPERGREENS NUTS & SEEDS ENERGY BARS

Ingredients:

1.5 cups pitted dates (190 grams)

1 cup boiling water

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice)

1/4 cup tahini

1/4 cup honey

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup coconut oil melted

1/2 cup almonds (preferably activated)

1/2 cup pistachios

1/2 cup pepitas (preferably activated)

1.5 tablespoons of Peptipro Supergreens Collagen powder

3 cups puffed Amaranth

1/4 teaspoon salt

250 grams dark chocolate (I use 70%)

1/4 cup coconut oil

2 tablespoons finely chopped pistachios for sprinkling

Method:

Grease a 12 x 8 inch lamington tin with coconut oil.

Pour the hot water over dates and let sit for 5 minutes to soften then discard the water.

Blend the dates, coconut oil, peanut butter, tahini, honey and vanilla in a food processor until a smooth ball forms.

Remove the mixture from the food processor and place into a large mixing bowl. Combine the almonds, pistachios, Supergreens Collagen powder and salt in the food processor and blend until coarsely chopped.

Add the nut and puffed amaranth to the date mixture and mix together with your hands. Press the mixture into the greased tray and refrigerate.

Melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a heat proof bowl over a saucepan of gently boiling water.

Pour the melted chocolate over the Supergreen slice and sprinkle with chopped pistachios and additional Peptipro Supergreen Collagen powder if desired.

Return to the fridge to set.

Cut into pieces and store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
