Chocolate Berry Superfood Bars

Base

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup dessicated coconut
  • 2 tbsp maca
  • 2 tbsp cacao
  • 1 cup dates
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1-3 tbsp almond milk

Top

  • 2 cups frozen raspberries
  • 2 tbsp acai powder
  • 1-2 tbsp rice malt syrup
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup desicated coconut
  • 1/4 cup chia seed
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • tsp vanilla
  1. Line a baking tin with non stick paper
  2. Place all base ingredients apart from almond milk into the food processor and blend until fine and crumbly
  3. If the mix is too dry and doesn’t stick when pushed down add small amounts of almond milk and mix until sticky
  4. Push base down into tin firmly and place in freezer while you prepare top layer
  5. Place all topping ingredients into food processor and blend until smooth – will still be quite thick because of the frozen berries
  6. Pour onto the base and smooth down with a spatula
  7. Put any toppings on and push down into the mix
  8. Place in freezer to set for half an hour
  9. Slice into desired sizes! I store a few slices in the fridge and some in the freezer as they are best thawed a little!
