Dark Chocolate Seed Bars recipe on http://www.bettybake.co.za .
Great for picnics and school lunches. This would also make a great present - cut into bars and pile high in a jar and dressed up with a wide ribbon. (would be so pretty)... Christmas maybe?
You can make these really healthy by adding as much seeds packed with nutrients as possible!
I also added some organic coconut flakes, a half a handful of raisins and 2 tablespoons of oats.
Nuts would work well too in this recipe.
I found the salt really bought out the flavour of the chocolate and seeds nicely so don't skip this - its a great addition.
The seed mix I used was:
coconut flakes (organic)
Rolled oats (a teeny bit) leave out if very sensitive to gluten
a half a handful of raisins
Other things that would work well in these bars:
chopped up almonds
chopped up dried peaches
a little ground cinnamon sprinkled in the mix
100grams bar/slab Dark Chocolate ( I used 70%)
350ml mixed seeds and a little dried fruit - totally up to you - use what you like
Break up your chocolate into small pieces and place in a double boiler.
Once chocolate is smooth stir in seeds and dried fruit etc
Press down onto a wax paper lined baking tray and pat into shape
Place another piece of wax paper on top and make sure to press firmly so there are no air bubbles
Peel back the top layer of wax paper and sprinkle on some salt flakes - just a little
Leave to set
Once hard cut with a sharp knife and store in an airtight container
What would you put in your bars?
