Servings 30 pieces
- 2/3 c 100g hazelnuts, roughly chopped
- 1 c almonds roughly chopped
- 2/3 c unsweetened flaked coconut
- 2/3 c lightly salted pistachios
- 2/3 c cacao nibs
- 1/3 c raw hemp hearts
- 2/3 c dehydrated cherries * roughly chopped
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground chilli
- 1/3 c orange marmalade melted
- 1/3 c honey melted
Preheat oven to 325 degrees C
In a large bowl combine roughly chopped ingredients and ground spices.
Heat orange marmalade and honey in a microwave until liquid and add to the mixture.
Stir until well mixed.
Line a 10x16 tin tray with parchment paper and pour in the mixture.
With a spatula compress the mixture until level and firm.
It should almost reach all edges of the pan.
Bake 30-40 mins at 325 degrees C.
Cool for 10 minutes before carefully lifting out on to a rack.
Cool a further hour before slicing (or breaking) into bars.
Store refrigerated in an airtight container.
*I dehydrate cherries each season but you can also substitute with prunes, apricots, mango - just check the sugar content as some brands are higher than others. I've also added my own dehydrated apple pieces, grapes, pineapple, and orange peel for variety.
