Serves: 6 Prep Time: Cooking Time: Nutrition facts: 430 calories 20 grams fat

Ingredients

  • 150g Almond - 1 cup
  • 100g Walnuts - 1 cup
  • 130g Pumpkin seeds - 1 cup
  • 50g Goji Berry - 1/2 cup
  • 350g Pitted SOFT Dates - 2 heaping cups
  • 1 Cup smooth Almond Butter (265g) OR Nut Butter of Choice (preferably unsalted)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt (I have added pink Himalayan salt)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon OR to taste

  • Square Pan: 9 X 2 Inch (23 X 5 cm)

Instructions

  1. Start by toasting the almonds for about 2 minutes on medium heat, then add the walnut and pumpkin seeds to it and toast for another 2 minutes. Once toasted, immediately remove it from heat and transfer it to a heatproof plate and allow it to completely cool down. This will prevent the nuts from burning.
  2. Now add the dates and almond butter to a food processor and blend it well and then add the toasted nuts, Goji berry, ground cinnamon, and salt. Blend it into a coarse mixture.

IMPORTANT:

  • if the mixture gets or looks too dry, that means it needs more binding, add some more almond butter.
  • Sometimes nuts/seeds/dates are dryer than usual and may need more binding. The fix is to increase the amount of almond butter so that it sticks together. Just empty the mixture into a bowl, add some almond butter mix it thoroughly until it starts sticking together.)

PROTEIN/ENERGY BARS:

  1. Prepare a pan by brushing the bottom and side walls with oil and line it with parchment paper. Transfer the mixture into the pan and press it with a spoon to pack it firmly. Take your time as it is REALLY important to press it firmly, especially the corners - this will prevent any air gaps and prevent the bars from crumbling while cutting. Smooth out the surface.
  2. Now cover it with plastic wrap and let it chill and set it in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours.
    Once it has been set, remove it from the pan and cut it into the desired shape with a sharp knife. Make sure to clean the knife with a paper towel in between cuts, this will keep the cuts clean.
  3. After cutting, wrap it individually in plastic wrap or parchment paper and store it in the refrigerator. This stores well in the fridge for 3 to 4 weeks.

PROTEIN/ENERGY BALLS:

  • Take two tablespoons of the mixture and press it between the palms of your hand until firm and formed into a ball. Then smooth out the surface. You can store it as is in an air-tight container or wrap it individually in plastic wrap or parchment paper.

Notes

IMPORTANT TIPS:

  • As soon as the nuts/seeds/dates are toasted remove it from the heat and transfer it to a plate to cool down. This will prevent it from burning. DO NOT leave it in the hot pan.
  • Please use SOFT dates only
  • If the mixture gets too dry and difficult to bind add some more almond butter
  • some nuts/seeds are dryer than usual and may need more binding. The fix is to increase the amount of almond butter so that it sticks together. Just empty the mixture into a bowl, add some almond butter mix it thoroughly until it starts sticking together and then transfer it back to the mould, press the mixture again and refrigerate
  • Make sure to brush the pan/mold with oil this will prevent the mixture from sticking to the sides
  • It’s really important that you take the time to pack the mixture properly in the pan until firm especially the corners. This will prevent the bars from crumbling while cutting it
