Well we have another stunner of a recipe from Elisa over at Happy Skin Kitchen! These Chocolate Omega 3 Bites have so many nutrients they are our number ONE go-to snack!
Chocolate Dream is one of our 2 blends that we have specially designed for the WHOLE family to enjoy. It has a nice taste (unlike a lot of superfoods which kids hate!) AND we have sneakily put beetroot, baobab and chlorella in there as well as the carob and cocoa which give it it’s lovely chocolatey taste! The chlorella means it’s full of wonderful nutrients including Vitamin D which young people, and us adults, need!
Over to Elisa….
These bites are so simple to make you will want to make over and over again. They are jammed pack with incredible skin loving omegas 3 thanks to the chia seeds and hemp seeds and they burst with amazing antioxidants thanks to the goji berries and One Earth Chocolate Dream superfood blend.
I love adding cacao butter as it really makes them taste like rich, indulgent chocolate, if you can’t find it you can substitute it with some good quality melted dark chocolate.
Ingredients: makes about 10-12 bites
¾ cup of almonds
2 tablespoons of hemp hearts
2 tablespoons of chia seeds
14-15 pitted medjool dates ( if you can’t find medjool dates you can use normal dates just make sure you soak them in some warm water for at least ½ an hour)
4 tablespoons of One Earth Chocolate Dream
1 tablespoon of goji berries
20gr of melted cacao butter (this is optional but it will give the bites a rich and chocolately flavour- you can also swap it with 50gr of melted dark chocolate)
Desiccated coconut for dusting
Place the almonds, hemp seeds, chia seeds into a food processor and blitz until you have a coarse kind of flour. Add the pitted dates, One Earth Coco Chocolate Dream, goji berries, and the melted cacao butter if using. Blitz again for a good minute or so until you have a sticky dough when pressed between your fingers.
Line a brownies tin with some parchment paper. Transfer the sticky mixture into the tin and with your hands press it down and spread it evenly. Sprinkle with shredded coconut and place it in the fridge to set for at least 1 hour.
Remove the tin from the fridge and cut into slices/squares. Store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Let us know how you get on making them!!
