ROSE & PISTACHIO ENERGY BARS
To celebrate the flavour of the month, we prepared a few special recipes for you that use our “Belgian Dark Chocolate” variety. Granola and chocolate lovers: this one is for you! Here is one of our favourites: energy bars with rose, pistachios, granola and chocolate!
1 cup dates, pitted & softened
½ cup puffed quinoa
2 tbsps hemp seeds
2 tbsps pistachios, chopped
- 2 tbsps maple syrup (optional)
2 tbsps nut butter
Coating: 150 grams dark chocolate (95%)
Topping: chopped pistachios & dried rose petals
Blend dates in a food processor into a paste. Add nut butter, blend until combined. Set aside.
Crush the granola into crumbs in the food processor.
In a large bowl, add date paste, granola crumbs, puffed quinoa, hemp seeds and pistachios and combine well
Cover a square cake tin with plastic foil and press the mixture into the tin. Push using the back of a glass.
Melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler
Pour the melted chocolate on top of the granola mixture and make sure it’s spread evenly.
Top with pistachios and rose petals. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Cut in bars or squares before serving.
