    Ingredients
    • 1/2 cup almonds
    • 1/2 cup oats
    • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
    • 4 dates seeds removed
    • 2 tbsp peanut butter
    • 2 tbsp honey
    • 1/4 cup almonds
    • 1/2 cup sultanas or raisins
    • 3 tbsp chocolate chips preferably non-sweet, otherwise any chocolate chips - it’s only a pinch
    Ingredients
    • 1/2 cup almonds
    • 1/2 cup oats
    • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
    • 4 dates seeds removed
    • 2 tbsp peanut butter
    • 2 tbsp honey
    • 1/4 cup almonds
    • 1/2 cup sultanas or raisins
    • 3 tbsp chocolate chips preferably non-sweet, otherwise any chocolate chips - it’s only a pinch
      Instructions
      1. In a blender, grind the almonds, and then the oats - separately. Combine them with the cocoa powder, and blend until mixed.
      2. Add the dates, peanut butter, and honey. Blend well until the mixture becomes a bit heavy.
      3. Empty into a bowl and add the sultanas and chocolate chips. Blend up the almonds to whatever size you like. (I prefer to leave them a little big - they add a nice crunch). Add them to the bowl and mix in with your hands.
      4. Before rolling each ball, wet your palms. This helps the mixture to bind, since there’s not much honey or dates, which would otherwise do the job.

        • 200 grams wholemeal flour (or gluten free flour)
        • 50 grams maple sugar
        • 150 grams demerera sugar (light brown cane sugar)

          1. Preheat oven to 180 °C. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
          2. In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.
          3. In another bowl, lightly beat the eggs with the Sweet Almond oil and the essential oil.
          4. Fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture and combine to form a sticky, but firm dough. Do not over mix.
          5. On a floured surface shape the dough into two large logs and place them on the baking tray.
          6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.
          7. Cool for 5 minutes before cutting the logs diagonally into slices.
          8. Arrange the slices on the baking sheet and return to oven for 20 minutes.
          9. Let cool before storing in an airtight container. Makes 24.
          Recipe Notes

          Tip: Coat your knife with some Sweet Almond Oil before cutting the figs so they don’t stick.
