Ingredients

1 cup fresh or soaked dried dates
¼ cup almonds
¼ cup blueberries
¼ cup roasted carob powder (or cacao to make 100% raw)
¼ cup ground flaxseed
¼ cup hemp protein
¼ cup unhulled sesame seeds
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
½ tsp lemon zest
Sea salt to taste
½ cup sprouted or cooked buckwheat (optional)
½ cup frozen blueberries

Method

In a food processor, process all ingredients except the buckwheat and fresh blueberries. Knead buckwheat and berries into mixture by hand. Roll out with a rolling pin (put wax paper on top to prevent mixture from sticking to rolling pin) to desired bar thickness and cut into individual bars. As the bars dry they become easier to handle. Makes approximately 12 1¾ ounce bars.
