Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C and roast the hazelnuts for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and leave to cool.
  • Start by pitting the dates and adding them to the food processor with the almond butter, tahini and coconut oil. Blend for about 5 minutes, until a smooth paste forms, then add the mixture to a large mixing bowl. Stir the quinoa puffs, flax seeds, sesame seeds, goji berries and apricots into the date paste and mix until completely combined.
  • Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and press the mixture into the baking tray, making sure it is even and quite firmly packed. Place in the fridge to set while you make the cacao layer.
