Gaby's Bakery - Superfood Energy Bars

No baking this week, just some easy mixing. Michael say’s if I’m not using the oven, I can hardly call it Gaby’s Bakery. But he was very complimentary on the chocolate covered brownies. “The dates and tahini give it a texture, and the chocolate/cocoa powder a thunderously intense flavour which makes it closer to a deep rich chewy truffle than a brownie. Amazed that something so delicious can be healthy too!” He said.

Superfood Energy Bar

Ingredients:

170g dates
115g walnuts (chopped)
115g pumpkin seeds
70g raisins
55g chia seeds
45g hemp seeds
40g ground flaxseed
35g cacao nibs
20g desiccated coconut
2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
Optional – dark chocolate melted to coat

Method:
Place the walnuts, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, flaxseed, coconut and cacao in a bowl and mix together. Put the dates, raisins and melted coconut oil in a food processor, add 3 quarters of the seed mixture and blitz until everything comes together and you have a smooth sticky consistency.

Add the remaining seed mixture and mix in with a spoon. Divide this among moulds, or place in a lined baking tray. Place in the freeze and leave for an hour to harden. If you are adding a chocolate topping, melt the chocolate and pour a thin layer over the top before freezing. Once ready remove from the freezer and take out the moulds / take out the baking tray and cut into bars.

Enjoy.

Coupe Sauvage was the brief. That French term from the 1970s encapsulating all lengths of very layered, textured, vibrant styles that hinted at the sexuality of wild, rampant and raw. And growing out tint isn't always successful, most people return to having colour, but Julie's was a rare case where the...

Where were you standing when you decided to adjust your hair colour? Do you stand there often?

At the first salon I worked as a junior, back in the last century, the colourists at the salon had an interesting technique for showing clients their finished results; escorting them to the ladies toilet where a single electric wall light seemed to cast a favourable glow.
