1 1/2 cup oats
1 cup dates & prunes
1 t vanilla extract
3 Tb coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup honey/agave/maple syrup
2 Tb mesquite powder (optional)
1/4 cup cup hemp seed
2 Tb flax seed
2 Tb chia seed
1/3 cup cashews (preferably soaked)
1/3 cup cocoa/cacao
1/2 t cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Put dates and prunes in bowl of water. Set aside.
Blend 1 cup of the oats in blender until it becomes oat flour. Then in a food processor, process dates and prunes (with about 1/4 cup of the water) with all the other wet ingredients until smooth. Now add all the dry ingredients, including the remaining 1/2 cup of whole oats and oat flour. Good consistency? It should be thick, but very moist. Press it into a pan lined with tin foil or plastic wrap and set in the fridge for a little bit so the coconut oil can stiffen them up.
Then cut 'em up and serve! Make a chocolate sauce for them, or have with fruit and nut butter!
*You can make these even simpler by just blending dates, cashews coconut oil and cacao. But I always like to add a bunch of stuff for more flavours. I cannot help it. It's up to you!
This is another fantastic recipe from This Rawsome Vegan Life.
