Ingredients

(use organic ingredients where possible)

  • ¼ cup hazelnuts
  • 15 dates, pitted
  • 2 tbsps cacao (raw chocolate) powder or substitute unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup unsweetened  almond butter

Method

  1. Process the hazelnuts into a medium-fine powder. Overall, it should be an even grind.

  3. Put the blade back in your food processor and add dates, raw cacao, almond butter, chia seeds, coconut oil, vanilla extract and sea salt.
