INGREDIENTS

SERVES 8

  • 1/4 cup Quinoa, Cooked
  • 6 Dates
  • 2 tbsp Tahini
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 cup Almonds

DIRECTIONS

1 Puree the dates, almonds and quinoa in a food processor, pressing several times until you get a smooth paste.
2 Transfer to a bowl, and add coconut oil, and tahini. Mix well with a spoon or clean hands until everything is completely incorporated.
3 Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
4 Wet your hands, take 2 tablespoons of the mixture, and form a bar. Place on a dish, and repeat with the rest.
5 Refrigerate for at least 2 more hours, and eat as desired. You can also put them in the freezer 2 hours before eating, for a firmer bar.
6 If you would like a more chocolatey taste, add as much cacao powder to the mixture, as you like.
