Prep Time:

Serves:

8

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons chia seed
  • Juice from ½ lemon (approximately 3 tablespoons)
Nuts and seeds
  • ½ cup raw walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons raw, hulled sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons hemp hearts
Dried fruit mix
  • 200 grams pitted medjool dates (approximately 13)
  • 100 grams dried apricots (approximately 20)
  • 3 tablespoons lucuma powder
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • Pinch sea salt

Instructions

  1. Combine chia seed and lemon juice in a small bowl. Stir to combine and leave to sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Add nuts and seed ingredients to the bowl of your food processor and pulse until broken down. Remove mixture from your processor and place in a large bowl. Set aside.
  3. Place dried fruit mix along with soaked chia (it will be a hard mass at this point, just scoop out with a spoon) in the bowl of your processor and process until smooth, about 3 minutes. It will form into a ball. This is good.
  4. Once smooth, add the nut mixture to dried fruit mixture and process just until combined.
  5. Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper draping over both sides for easy lifting and drop the mixture into the prepared pan. Press and smooth out with a spatula.
  6. Fridge version: Place pan in the fridge for a couple of hours to harden. Remove, cut into cubes and store in the fridge or freezer until ready to consume.
  7. Dehydrator version: Place pan in the fridge for a couple of hours to harden. Remove, cut into cubes and place in your dehydrator. Dehydrate at 105F for 4 hours.
