Ingredients
  1. 3 tbsp cold-pressed coconut oil
  2. 1 cup nut butter (I use Carley's Organic Raw Whole Almond Butter)
  3. 10 pitted dates
  4. 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  5. 1 cup puffed quinoa (you can also use puffed buckwheat)
  6. 1/2 cup raw almonds pieces (I put whole almonds in a food processor and whiz it a few times).
  7. A pinch sea salt
Chocolate fudge topping
  1. 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  2. 1/3 cup cacao
  3. 3 tablespoon of raw honey
Instructions
  1. In a bowl mash the pitted dates with a fork and add to a food processor with the nut butter.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a sauce pan on a low/medium heat just until it melts, then take it off straight away and add to the food processor with your dates and nut butter. Don't walk away from the coconut oil on the hob as it'll melt very quickly.
  3. Whiz the mixture in the food processor until evenly mixed. Then removed the blade from the food processor as you need to stir in the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Add the pumpkin seeds, puffed quinoa, chopped almonds and salt to the mixture and stir until all the ingredients are evenly mixed together.
  5. Take a baking dish that's roughly 8 x 10 inches and line the bottom with parchment paper/grease proof baking paper.
  6. Pour/spoon the batter into the baking dish and push the mixture down firmly so it's tightly compressed and flat. Put the baking dish in the fridge while you make the chocolate fudge topping.
Chocolate fudge topping
  1. Mix the coconut oil, cacao and honey in a blender or food processor until smooth. The mixture should be like a melted chocolate consistency so add a drop more coconut oil if needed.
  2. Pour this chocolate mixture over the nutty bars, spreading the chocolate so it completely covers the nut bars.
  3. Place back in the fridge for at least an hour.
  4. Your nutty bars are now ready and can be chopped into squares and served.
Notes
  1. You can make the nutty bars without the chocolate topping as a lower sugar option.
  2. The chocolate fudge can also be made on its own and served as chocolate fudge slices. I add the juice of one orange and doTERRA Wild Orange to my fudge to make chocolate orange flavour.
