Healthy chocolate bar

Ingredients for 10 bars

  • 100 g coconut oil
  • 40 g raw cacao powder
  • 200 g date paste (approx. 120 g dates + 80 g water)
  • 60 g of puffed grains such as rice, amaranth, buckwheat or quinoa
  • 1 tbsp protein powder or coconut flour (optional)
  • 40 g roasted hazelnuts
  • 20 g dried cranberries (optional)
  • pinch of salt

Preparation

  1. For the date paste, let the dates soak in hot water for at least 4 hours (or overnight). You can make more and store the remaining date paste in a glass for muesli, cakes or as a spread. The paste should be thick, but not too firm. If too thick, add more water to achieve the desired texture.
  2. Pour and mix with a little remaining liquid to form a firm paste.
  3. Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the cacao powder and the date paste.
  5. Line a small baking dish or airtight container with baking paper.
  6. Quickly stir the puffed rice and amaranth into the chocolate mixture.
  7. Spread the entire mixture onto the baking paper and press it down firmly.
  8. Lightly press the roasted nuts and dried cranberries onto the surface.
  9. Refrigerate for one hour.
  10. Carefully lift the mixture out of the mould using the baking paper and cut straight strips with a sharp knife or a knife that has been warmed under hot water.

The bars can be kept for a week in the fridge or three months in the freezer.
