DSCN2924Whats not to love about this recipe? It’s full of super healthy ingredients, it’s gluten free and vegan and it tastes great too.

The coconut flour really enhances the other flavours. Dates are good to bring out the sweetness without having to add sugar or syrups and the chia seed help everything stick together without eggs and flour.

Ingredients

1/4cup coconut flour

1/4 cup quinoa flakes

1 cup dates soaked in 1 cup water

1/2 cup chia seeds

1/4 cup sunflower

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup Dried Cranberries

¼ cup water

Start by soaking the dates in 1 cup water for around 30 minutes

DSCN2916Whilst they are soaking, preheat the oven to 180 C and line your square baking tin with baking paper

Measure out the dry ingredients and place in a mixing bowl

DSCN2915Put your dates with the soaking water in the blender until a smooth paste and add this to the dry ingredients and mix through.

Use the ¼ cup of water to add moisture as required.

Once ingredients are well mixed, tranfer to the baking tin and smooth down evenly to all corners.

Bake for 20 min

Let stand for 5 minutes and then cut into 16 squares

You can keep these in the freezer
