Unbelievably Easy No-Bake Chia, Date & Walnut Slice
« on: May 03, 2013, 11:51:58 am »
Chia, Date & Walnut Slice
Converted from this month's Healthy Food Guide magazine :D

Ingredients:
150g rolled oats
80g walnuts
40g coconut (shredded or desiccated)
40g chia seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tbsp cocoa
2 tsp vanilla
425g pitted dates
few tsp cold water
icing sugar, to serve, if desired

Method:
Chuck everything except water and icing sugar in TMX bowl. Whizz on speed 5 until mixture becomes fine, then add little dashes of cold water through lid until it comes together. Press into a greased dish (I used a 23cm pie dish) and refrigerate. When ready to serve, slice and dust with icing sugar. Can be kept, covered, in the fridge for up to 2 weeks :D

I saw this one Amy and wondered if you would convert it.  I did put it on my list of recipes I liked from that book but I am just not doing much in the kitchen these days.  I let Katie borrow the book and she's done a couple of the recipes already.

I like the sound of this. I must remember to make it when we get home.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I am planning to give this a try using Almond flour instead of the Oats and so making it Paleo suitable.

Hi DD. Let us know how it goes. I know troupie likes Paleo things for her son.
