Almond and Chia seed slice

IMG_6197I love blogging, I MISS blogging, so in this year when I have no goals to date and seem to be going around in circles, Ive decided to at least make more time to do the things I love.

I went to the movies a few weeks ago with some of my favourites, and I brought a large pop corn, knowing I would feel crap afterwards but doing it anyway. I had made a sizeable dent into my oversize popcorn container before the opening credits, and my lovey friend next to me passed along some of her home baking. I knew straight away that it was good for me dressed up as chocolate slice, not because it tasted sub par, but I could taste all the things in there I knew were good for me – almonds, chia seeds and coconut.
I got the recipe the next day and have had stocks of it in the fridge ever since! Take literally 5-10 min to make and its a much better alternative for me to junk when I need a quick bit to eat while I’m staring into the fridge aimlessly. Added bonus – my fussy kids eat it! Winning!

The recipe comes from here – but I have altered it slightly and also added coconut oil as it helped it to bind better for me to make more of a slice feel.

What you need -Ai??
1 cup of almonds
1 1/2 cup dates
2-3 tablespoons of cacao powder (I used cocoa powder)
1 1/2 cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoons of chia seeds
2 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
What to do –
  1. In your food processor, blitz one cup of almonds until they are fine like almond meal
  2. Place the rest of the ingredients into the food processor
  3. Blitz until the mixture is dough like. This may take a bit of time depending on the power of your food processor. You also may need to stop the food processor several times & scrape down the sides
  4. Once the mixture is soft & dough like place press into a slice pan that has been lined with baking paper
  5. Place in the fridge for 1 hour before serving
