Method

  1. Cover dates with boiling water and leave to stand.
  2. Preheat your oven to 180C.
  3. In a mixing bowl place millet flakes, oats, coconut oil and 100ml maple syrup, and mix well. Place on a baking tray (covered with baking paper) and bake for 15-20 minutes (check halfway through to make sure it’s not burnt).
  4. Place a heat-proof bowl over a saucepan of water and gently heat on a low setting. Melt your chocolate bar in the bowl. Use a whisk to keep the mixture moving.
  5. Place your soaked dates, 100g hazelnuts, cashew nut butter, salt, melted chocolate, and a splash of water in a blender, and blend until you reach a paste consistency.
  6. Chop the remaining hazelnuts roughly.
  7. Mix your chocolate paste with toasted oats and chopped hazelnuts and combine.
  8. Layer a baking tray with parchment paper, pour your mixture into the baking tray and press down firmly.
  9. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
  10. Cut into even shapes and enjoy!
