These are yummy…very yummy so the family tells me and my family doesn’t hold back on culinary truths. This slice is a great balance of proteins and carbs, is hearty but light, not too sweet and stores in the fridge for ages. I love it that the goodness of the Manuka Honey is 100% retained and with the nut butter, dates, nuts and seeds it’s a great energy booster, I have been known to grab a couple on the run for lunch when time has disappeared on me. It’s really simple and quick to create and you can make it your own by choosing whatever nuts, seeds and nut butter you may have on hand. I hope you enjoy it!
On a side note…using any of our honey would be delicious but if I’m making a raw slice like this I prefer to use the higher strength to add the extra benefits that it gives. A little extra immunity in a slice is a good thing right and I use organic everything where I can and the little ones love it too.
Happy, Healthy Baking 💚
2 cups of wholegrain organic oats – spread out on a baking paper lined tray and toast in the oven.
2 cups of nuts of your choice roughly chopped. I used brazil and almonds.
½ cup activated buckwheat
½ cup sesame seeds
½ cup cacao nibs
10 medjool dates
4 big tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
3 tablespoons Steens Manuka Honey (I used a UMF 15+)
¼ cup water
Pinch of salt
Line a 34 x 20cm slice tin with baking paper allowing a good amount to extend over the sides.
In the food processor whizz up the dates, add the peanut butter, manuka honey, water and salt until well combined and resembling a smooth paste.
In a large bowl add all the other ingredients and using your hands (it’s a sticky business but I find hands the best for this,) add the date mix and work really well into the dry ingredients.
3Pop into the prepared tin and spread out evenly, using the extended baking paper I put this back over the slice and press really firmly all over it compressing the ingredients ready for chilling in the fridge before cutting it into slices.
Yes it’s that simple!
