Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients

  • 5 Weetbix 75g (Weetabix or Wheat Biscuits)
  • 1 Cup Dates pitted
  • ½ Cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ Cup desiccated coconut
  • 4 Tbsp Cocoa

Instructions

  • Watch the quick recipe video before you get started, scroll up a little to find it
  • Check the notes at the bottom of the recipe for little bits of extra info and help
  • Place first 7 ingredients in a food processor
  • Blitz until comes together into a ball (takes 3-5 mins). If The mix is not coming together add 1-2 Tablespoons of water
  • While food processor is doing its magic line a loaf tin with baking paper
  • If you have chosen to use dark chocolate on the top, you can also get this melted. I either use a double boiler, or for a small quantity like this I do short 30 second bursts in the microwave on 50% power)
  • Press the mixture into the loaf tin

Notes

  • Store in the refrigerator for 3-5 days, or freeze
  • Be patient: This mixture can take what seems like quite a bit of blitzing to come together.
  • If after 3-5 minutes of food processing the mix is still not coming together add 1-2 Tablespoons of water.
  • If your food processor struggles with the dates, try soaking them in warm water first. Or pop them in a microwave-proof bowl, add a splash of water, cover then microwave for a couple of minutes.
  • I tend to just use regular dried dates as they are so much cheaper. but you can use Medjool dates, they are softer and easier on food processors.
Substitutions
  • Weetbix: This can be substituted for generic brand cereal ie Wheat Biscuits
  • Sunflower seeds: These can be substituted for any nuts or seeds
  • Dates: These can be substitutes for raisins or sultanas. Dried apricots are an option but give the slice quite a different look and flavour profile. I typically use regular dates but you can use medjool dates which are softer.
  • Desiccated coconut: This can be left out entirely, just increase the seeds or nuts by half a cup.
  • Honey: This can be substituted for rice malt syrup. I have also used maple syrup but the slice was a little stickier with the maple syrup.
For dairy-free ensure the chocolate used is dark chocolate that is dairy-free or skip the chocolate layer on top. For wheat and gluten-free the new gluten-free Weetbix work well in this recipe
