Chia Seed Slice



1 cup oats

½ cup slivered almonds

¼ cup pepitas

¼ cup sunflower seeds

10 dates

1 tsp cinnamon

¼ cup maple syrup

½ cup sesame seeds

¼ cup chia seeds

3 tablespoons water

½ cup coconut


Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line a rectangular baking dish with baking paper.

On a baking tray line it with baking paper. Place the oats, pepitas, sunflower seeds, slivered almonds into

a bowl, give a good mix then spread them evenly onto the baking paper and put into the oven for about

8 minute until they are lightly browned – be careful not to burn them.

Place the dates into a small bowl and soak them in boiling water from the kettle for about 5 minutes to

soften them up.

Once the nuts/seeds are lightly brown place into food processor along with the dates, cinnamon and

maple syrup, blend until just combined. Transfer into a bowl and add in the chia seeds, sesame seeds

and water and give a good mix. Pour ingredients into baking dish and really flatten the mixture out and

compress down with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle coconut on top and again press down with the back of

a spoon. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes until set. Stores well in the fridge or freezer.
