Chia, Date and Walnut Slice
1 ½ cups rolled oats
¾ cup walnut halves
½ cup shredded coconut
¼ cup white or black chia seeds
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
2 tsp natural vanilla extract
3 ½ cups pitted dried dates, chopped
Place the oats, walnuts, coconut, chia seeds, cinnamon, cocoa powder and vanilla extract in a food processor and process until finely chopped.
With the motor running, start adding the dates a few pieces at a time, processing until you've used all the dates and the mixture begins to come together. Now bring it together by hand, adding 1-2 teaspoons cold water if necessary.
Press the mixture evenly into a round 20cm cake tin, smoothing the surface firmly with the back of a spoon.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
To serve cut into thin wedges.
