  • 1 cup sunflower seed butter (recipe below*)
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp fine grain iodised salt
  • ½ cup cocoa / cacao powder
  • 100g dark chocolate (70% or higher), roughly chopped

Directions:

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and vanilla. Add the seed butter and mix thoroughly. Add the maple syrup, baking soda, and salt and fold together. Sift in the cocoa/cacao and stir to incorporate. Fold in the chopped chocolate.
  3. Drop dollops of the cookie dough on the prepared baking sheet about 5cm apart, and flatten them a little. Sprinkle your pepitas from a height, don’t worry about those that fall between the cookies, you’ll pop them in a jar once roasted for a tasty snack later on.
  4. Bake the cookies for 10 to 13 minutes. Let them cool slightly before serving. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.

Sunflower Seed Butter – warning – highly addictive. 

Makes about 1½ cups

  • Fine-grain iodised salt

  3. Using your most powerful food processor, blitz the sunflower seeds, occasionally scraping down the sides, until smooth and creamy. Adding a little extra virgin olive oil will improve consistency – use up to 3 Tbsp in your mixture if desired. Salt to taste (start with ½ tsp or less; taste once combined, and before adding more)
  4. Once the mixture is creamy, transfer to a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid, and store in the fridge for up to 1 month.

PiSTACiO, BERRY + CHiA CHOC SLiCE

By | Dessert, Recipes, Recipes Detail Page, Snacks | No Comments

METHOD

BASE LAYER: add all base ingredients to a high powered blender and blitz until it resembles fine crumbs and sticks together when pressed. Spoon mixture into a lined slice tin and press down with the back of a spatula. Place it in the freezer, and rinse your blender.

 

BERRY LAYER: add berries, cashews and maple syrup to your blender and blitz until smooth. Now stir through the chia seeds and coconut oil. Add the berry mix to the base and smooth over with a spatula again. Return to the freezer to set.

 

CHOC LAYER: If your coconut oil is solid, melt it in a small saucepan; if not, this step can be done straight in a mixing bowl. To your liquid coconut oil add the cacao powder, stir til the lumps are gone, then add the maple syrup. Pour on to the berry layer…and back to the freezer for it to completely set (a few hours).

This recipe needs to store in the freezer as it will melt quickly otherwise. Cut as you need!
