Updated: Feb 25

I’m not gonna lie, this is one of the most delish snacks I have EVER made!

It’s super chock full of healthy fats and and amazing goodness

And not only that, it’s so satisfying….just one small square fills you up!

The recipe is a Thermomix one and is a little long to pop here so I’ve added it to my Blog

You will be able to find it if you head to my bio and click on the “Blog” link

Here are the ingredients also you can get your shopping list sorted…


Ingredients

Trail mix

  • 230 g raw almonds

  • 70 g sunflower seeds

  • 70 g pumpkin seeds

  • 70g sultanas or currants

  • 25 g coconut flakes

  • 25g dried goji berries

  • 70 g macadamia nuts, chopped

  • 45 g dried apricots, chopped

  • 45g dried figs, chopped

Chocolate bars

  • 100 g raw cacao butter, cut into pieces (1-2 cm)

  • 30 g raw cacao powder, to taste

  • 30g honey

  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract

  • ⅛ tsp fine sea salt

I swapped out the apricots and the figs for a mixture of nuts and Buckinis (roasted buckwheat) just to cut down on the sugars a little


Preparation

Trail mix

  • Preheat oven to 150°C. Line a baking tray (30 x 40 cm) with baking paper and set aside.

  • Place almonds into mixing bowl and chop 7 sec/speed 5. Transfer onto prepared baking tray.

  • Add pumpkin and sunflower seeds to baking tray with almonds and bake for 15-20 minutes (150°C) or until golden. Allow mixture to cool on tray. Meanwhile, continue with recipe.

  • Mix sultanas, apricots, figs, coconut flakes, macadamias and goji berries

  • Add cooled almonds and seeds and stir to combine

Chocolate bars

  • Line a rectangular slice tin (20 x 30 cm) with baking paper.

  • Place cacao butter into mixing bowl of Thermomix*and chop 20 sec/speed 8, then melt 5 min/37°C/speed 2.

  • Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula and melt 6 min/37°C/speed 2.

  • Add cacao powder, honey, vanilla and salt and blend 1 min/speed 8.

  • Add 400 g of trail mix and combine 10 sec/reverse/speed 2. Transfer into prepared tin and spread evenly. Press mixture down firmly. Place into freezer to set for 30 minutes or until firm, making sure tin is level so bar sets evenly.

  • Remove from freezer and cut into lengths (2 cm wide), then cut each bar into thirds (makes approx. 18 bars in total). Serve immediately or wrap bars in baking paper, place into a sealable container and store in freezer until ready to serve

  • Pop the leftover trail mix in a jar and enjoy as a healthy snack.

*This can easily be made using a double boiler on a stove top should you not have a Thermomix





Healthy wishes always
