Hearty Ginger Crunch

I call this "hearty" instead of 'healthy' because I'd hate you to think that regular ginger crunch can't be part of a healthy balanced way of eating. However, these little gems are not just tasty, they truly are hearty! With protein, healthy fats, fibre and ... maple syrup of course!




Ingredients:


Base:

1 1/2 cup wholegrain oats

1/2 cup almonds

1/2 cup cashews

1/2 cup dates, soaked in hot water for 30 minutes, then drained

1/3 cup coconut oil, melted

1 teaspoon ginger powder

1/4 tsp sea salt


Filling:

1/3 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup cashew butter or almond butter

4 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp vanilla essence

pinch of sea salt


Directions:


Place the oats, almonds and cashews in a food processor or high speed blender and process until you have a fine crumb.

Add the dates, and coconut oil to the nut/oat mixture and pulse until it starts to come together and/or is well combined.

Press into a square slice tin that has been lined with baking paper.

Place into the fridge or freezer to set.


For the filing, put all the filling ingredients into the blender or food processor (no need to clean beforehand) and blend until smooth and creamy.

Pour evenly over the top of your base and return the mixture to the fridge or freezer to set.


Slice into desired sized pieces and enjoy!
