|Apricot-Cocoa Hemp Bars|
Why hemp?- Well, it's truly a superfood, containing EFAs such as linoleic acid and omega-6, and is second only to soya beans for protein. (Watch out for it here in Ingredient of the Month sometime in the future.) Don't worry: there is no THC in the hemp you buy to eat, so it won't hurt you! As the cocoa flavour and hemp-y texture is quite intense, I made 8 small bars from these quantities.
7 rounded tabs shelled hemp seeds
2 flat tabs fine wholegrain porridge oats
2 flat tabs apricot jam
2 flat tabs organic cocoa powder
- Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Press evenly into a lightly-oiled tray or a silicone mould and refrigerate for at least half an hour to firm up.
- Cut into bars, remove from the mould and serve.
