a Healthy nut
so you know that feeling when you have to eat something sweet but dont want to raid the pantry as you'll reach for that un-opened chocolate bar
... you just know you wont stop at just one piece?
how about an alternative? Healthy brownies....health-y!
no cooking required either so this is so easy if you have a food processer on hand.
I spotted these via pinterest (where else??) and have made them a few times now...I always change up the recipe
so this is what I used this time.
1 cup pitted dates (or date paste)
1 cup pitted soft prunes
1-2 cups raw almonds (soak overnight if your blender cant handle hard chopping)
handful of sunflower seeds
handful of pepita seeds
handful dark chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons Chia seeds
2 Tablespoons Almond butter (peanut butter is fine too)
a splash of water if needed
mulch it all up in the blender!
press in lined tin and refrigerate for a couple of hours - cut up in small pieces and store in air-tight container in the fridge - eat often!
(...and No! these are not laxatives although they might look like they are haha....)
