Goji and Hemp bars

2016-06-04 06.38.34

Apologies for the fuzzy photo I tried to zoom in with my phone camera.

I quite like bars like this and having seen the latest price of Naked bars in Asda (98p each!!!) I’ll be making more variations especially as Miss Aromawitch likes my choc and orange version.

These are also a good way to use up left over nut pulp from making “milks”, although “cheese” making works well too.  So as I already had goji berries soaking in fresh orange juice I threw these together last night after making some cashew milk.

You will need

Food processor

Dehydrator if available (or oven set to lowest temp)

Knife and chopping board.

Ingredients

Pulp from milk made with one cup of cashew nuts

1 cup ground almonds

50g goji berries

Juice of one orange

2 tsps lucuma powder

2 tsps baobab powder

1tsp mixed spice

1/2 cup dates

How to make

Start by soaking the goji berries in the orange juice until fully swollen and most of the juice has been absorbed. Do not strain.

Add all the ingredients to your food processor bowl.

Process until smooth. It doesn’t need to be completely pureed. If you’ve had some of the commercially available bars you’ll know they occasionally have bits.

Press into a 8 inch by 8 inch tray that has been lined with greaseproof paper.2016-06-03 19.34.252016-06-03 19.36.48

This mixture is very sticky!!!!

Make sure the surface is level. If your tray has a removable bottom you can remove the whole thing, fold in any flaps of greaseproof paper and use the bottom to even it up.

Peel off the greaseproof paper and cut in half to place on your dehydrator tray.

Dehydrate for 8 hours at 40C and then cut into slices. This makes 14-16 depending on the width of the slice.

Put back in the dehydrator and dehydrate for a further 5 hours at 40C.

Will keep for about two weeks in an airtight box at room temperature, unless of course they are eaten first.

Enjoy!
