Method: (see video below) You will a good high-speed blender food processor for this recipe, and also a very large cake or roasting dish. First, place the dried fruit in a saucepan and cover it with water, as this will need to soak for at least 30 minutes to soften. Otherwise, it won’t purée up in the blender. I well these are so I can go ahead and measure out all of your other ingredients so they’re all ready to go. Next, take the nuts and seeds and chop them up in the food processor until they’re smaller than half a grain of rice. Put the nuts and seeds in a bowl and add the cacao powder the coconut and the coconut sugar, and mix well. Might have to wait a little while for the soaked dried fruit, but the next step is to put this in the food processor along with the date syrup and vanilla and Chia seeds. Do you want to process this down into a thick puree. Then we can mix the dry ingredients in the wet ingredients together for a few minutes until well blended, then simply press into the tray and place in the fridge to set. An optional extra to melt some extra good-quality dark chocolate over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon. One piece a day should keep the cravings away! Good luck Brett
