This is one of my favourite snack recipes as it has both chocolate and nuts, which I love.
It takes a bit more time to make this, but it is definitely worth it.
This chocolate nut and seed bar is a delicious snack made with ingredients that you can buy easily and it will satisfy your sweet and chocolate cravings.
Nut & Seed Bar
½ cup cashew nuts
½ cup almonds
1 ½ cup puffed rice
½ cup pumpkin/sunflower seeds
½ cup shredded coconut
½ cup dried fruits, chopped
1/3 cup honey (or less if you don’t want it sweet)
½ cup almond or cashew nut butter
100 grams dark chocolate
Blend the nuts, seeds, puffed rice, shredded coconut and dried fruit, so there are no large pieces. It is easier to blend all ingredients apart from dried fruit and then add this in last.
In a bowl combine the honey and nut butter and if needed add in a little water. This will depend on the consistency of the nut butter, if too thick, you need to add in water gradually.
Then mix all the dry ingredients into this mixture until fully coated. This is important that is fully coated and binds, so that it can set. If not binding, add in a little more nut butter.
Line a baking tray with paper and spoon the mixture on. Use a spatula or pizza roller to flatten so it’s all the same level and it is firm.
Melt the chocolate in a metal bowl over some hot water. Spoon this over the mixture and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
Cut into pieces and serve. This should be stored in the refrigerator or the chocolate will melt.
