Ingredients
  

  • 125 g almond
  • 125 g hazelnuts
  • 200 g dates
  • 150 g oat flakes
  • 20 g flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp cardamon powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 80 g good quality dark chocolate

Instructions
 

  • You can use raw nuts in the recipe to get the best nutritional value.
    But, for a better flavor, start by roasting the nuts in the oven. Nuts are high in fat but contain healthy fats that are valuable for your body. In order to keep the structure of those healthy fats unchanged, roast them at max. 130°celsius for 10–15 minutes. Set a handful of nuts aside for later.
  • Soft dates can be cut into pieces and added directly to the recipe. If the texture is dry, soak them for 30 minutes in some water.
  • Grind the oat flakes and nuts together using a food processor. Add cacao, cinnamon, cardamom, and flex seeds.
  • Cut the dates into pieces, add them to the mixture above, and keep mixing. Add some water until it gets a sticky texture. Not too soft like a paste, but soft enough to form it.
  • Add the mixture on a sheet and make a quadrat approx. 1 cm thick. Roughly chop the nuts you set aside and spread them on top.
  • Melt the dark chocolate and pour it evenly on top. Let it cool and cut it into pieces.
  • Keep them in the fridge or freeze them, so you can have a delicious, healthy snack on hand.
  • They taste even better after 1–2 days.

Notes

The caloric value was calculated per serving.
Benefits:
Almonds are a real superfood, they are high in monounsaturated fats, antioxidants, vitamin E, protein, and fiber.
According to a study, eating 60 grams of almonds a day reduces inflammation in the body and improves the insulin sensitivity of the cells. They are rich in magnesium, which has plenty of benefits, including diabetes prevention and management, a reduction in high blood pressure, and a reduction in LDL cholesterol levels.
Hazelnuts also have a great nutrient profile. Although they are high in calories, they are loaded with nutrients and healthy fats, and antioxidants like Vit. E
Raw cacao powder has some of the highest concentrations of antioxidants of any food, due to the flavonoids it contains, is rich in minerals, and has great anti-inflammatory properties.
Recommendation for doshas:
It suits well a Vata type. If there is a high Vata disbalance, you can reduce the amount of cacao powder to avoid overstimulating the nervous system.
Pitta and Kapha should eat in moderation. The dessert is highly concentrated, yet even when consumed in moderate quantities, it is satiating and provides the body with valuable nutrients.
