Ingredients

  • 50g butter or coconut oil at room temperature (20g + 30g)
  • 35g honey (20g + 15g)
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
  • 70g pitted dates
  • 70g cashew nuts
  • 70g ground almonds
  • 20g buckwheat groats (optional)
  • 15g chia seeds
  • 15g flax seeds
  • 15g raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
  • Flaked almond ‘nails’

Equipment

  • Small bowl
  • Food processor/blender
  • Teaspoon
  • Plate/tray for freezer
  • Saucepan
  • Wooden spoon

Allergens

Nuts, dairy (optional)

Directions

1 Soak the dates in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes
2 While they are soaking add the buckwheat, cashew nuts, ground almonds, flax and chia seeds to your food processor/blender with 20g of butter/coconut oil, 20g of honey and 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
3 Strain the dates and pop them into your food processor too and then blitz for a few minutes until the dates and cashew nuts have fully broken down
4 Ask an adult for help to remove the blade and then start rolling your fingers! Roll a small amount of the mixture (about the size of a 50p coin) into a long finger shape
5 Pop the fingers onto a plate or small container and place in the freezer while you make the chocolate coating
6 Gently melt 30g of butter or coconut oil in a saucepan with 15g of honey and then stir in the raw cacao powder until fully combined
7 Take the chocolate off the heat and allow to cool for a couple of minutes
8 Remove the fingers from the freezer and use a teaspoon to coat one half of each of them in chocolate!
9 Lastly add an almond flake to the chocolate end as a nail and then lay flat on a plate/tray and store in the fridge for up to a week

Fun fact! Buckwheat was first discovered in South East Asia thousands of years ago!

Buckwheat groats are available to buy online and give a lovely crunch to recipes but aren’t essential!

The groats are gluten free seeds from a plant related to rhubarb and pack a powerful nutritional punch
