Ingredients
  • FOR “MARZIPAN”
  • 2 tbsp + 1 tsp coconut nectar, feel free to substitute your preferred liquid sweetener
  • hanful of spinach
  • ⅛ tsp turmeric powder, optional
  • ¼ tsp spirulina powder, optional
  • 1 cup ground almond
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • FOR FILLING
  • ¾ cup soft dates
  • ¼ cup hulled hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • ½ tsp maca powder, optional
Instructions
  1. To get started, just literally place everything (coconut nectar, spinach, turmeric, spirulina) into a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Place almonds, shredded coconut and coconut oil in a food processor and process to combine. Add the coconut nectar - spinach mixture and process until you get a very firm dough with "marzipan" texture. When the marzipan is done move it to a parchment paper and fold another parchment paper on top, roll the dough flat with a rolling pin (roll as thinly as you can into a rough oblong) and let it rest on the parchment paper while you make the filling.
  3. To make the filling place all ingredients into a food processor fitted with the S blade and process until you have a dough with the same texture as raw bliss balls. Remove dough from processor and roll it into a slightly flat, long log.
  4. Peel off the top parchment paper, place the filling log on the marzipan (in the middle or to the one side of the marzipan) oblong and use the parchment paper to help you roll/wrap the marzipan around it. Keep the paper fairly tight as you roll to avoid air bubbles and the marzipan will fit neatly. Turn the log over so that the join is underneath. Trim off the excess marzipan (both ends), then brush the corner join lightly with water, press it to seal. Smooth the marzipan over with your hands so their warmth will give it a smooth finish.
  5. Put in the freezer for 30 mins to harden a little and then cut up into bars. Enjoy!
