I’ve spoken a bit about the health benefits of a vegan diet so, to follow on from that, here’s a nice, tasty recipe for some raw vegan fruit and nut bars. They only have 4 simple, healthy ingredients and can be made quickly and easily with the help of a food processor. So, what are you waiting for – lets go!
- 450g partially dried figs
- 2006 walnuts
- 100g sunflower seeds
- 20g cocoa powder
Step 1: Put the walnuts and sunflower seeds into your food processor and blend for about 30 seconds or until they have broken down into a breadcrumb-like texture.
Step 2: Add the cocoa powder and blend again.
Step 3: Add about a third of the dates and blend until they are combined. Do this twice more until all the dates have been blended in and the mixture sticks together.
Step 4: Spread the mixture out evenly onto a 12″ x 8″ pan/dish lined with greaseproof paper. Put in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Step 5: Slice into 12 even pieces and enjoy! 🙂
Here’s an approximate nutritional break down per bar:
