Methodbased on 12 servings
1

Place dates in a small bowl, cover with the boiling water and set aside for 10-15 minutes, tossing regularly.

2

Line a loaf tin (approx. 10 x 20cm) with baking paper.

3

Drain dates, reserving the water, and process with oats, peanut butter and vanilla to make a sticky dough, adding reserved water if needed.

4

Stir through sunflower seeds and press firmly into prepared tin. Place in freezer for 25-30 minutes to set.

5

Melt chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave in 30 second intervals (or in a bowl over a saucepan with a small amount of simmering water, stirring) until just melted. It should be warm to the touch but not too hot or it won’t set properly.

6

Drizzle chocolate over chilled base and top with chopped pistachios. Return to the freezer for 10 minutes or until the chocolate has set hard.

7

Cut into 12 even bars.

 

Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to a week or freeze for up to 3 months.
