This is a pretty easygoing recipe, I’ve made quite a few different versions of it. Usually all depending on what’s in my cupboard that I can throw all together at once. Its great for snacks and totally yum for breakfast, dessert, whenever..!


1 ½ cup x medjool dates (preferably soaked in water for about half an hour beforehand)

1 cup x activated buckwheat

2 tbsp x chia seeds

1 tbsp x maca powder

1/3 cup x raw cacao powder

1 tbsp x maple syrup

½ cup x pepitas

½ cup x goji berries

½ cup x desiccated coconut

1 tsp x pure vanilla extract

pinch x sea salt


1. Add the dates and maple syrup into your food processor and pulse until smooth.

2. Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix until they are all combined and sticking together.

3.  Press the dense mixture into a lined baking tray and sprinkle the desiccated coconut over the top. Leave it in the freezer for a couple of hours to set (this slice is best left in the freezer anyway)

4.  Then serve and enjoy!
