The roasted hazelnuts combined with the 100 percent cacao powder almost tasted as though a hint of Nutella was in the recipe. But it’s not! These are moist and easy to eat on the bike. They are good fuel for a longer endurance ride as the nuts are slower to digest. Hazelnuts are packed with minerals, antioxidants and healthy fats.
Kitchen tools you will need for this recipe:
Food processor and rolling pin.
-200 grams roasted hazelnut meal
-490 grams of pitted medjool dates
-3 Tbsp cacao powder
-100 grams oats
-15 grams melted coconut oil
-1 Tbsp water (if not coming together)
Mix all in a food processor, in two lots if you have a small food processor.
Mix until all is combined and has formed into a dough.
Place mixture in between two pieces of greaseproof paper, with the rolling pin roll and shape into a 25 cm wide x 21 cm flat shape about half a cm thick. (See photos)
Place in the fridge for 2 hours so it’s easier to cut. Cut into bite size squares and wrap in tin foil.
Store in the fridge or in the freezer to keep well preserved.
