Cooking time:

Ingredients

• 1/4 cup Pumpkin seeds

• 1/4 cup Orange juice + 2 tablespoons Chia = Chia gel

• 1 tablespoon Mesquite

• 1 pinch Himalayan salt

• 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon

• 3 dried, soft Apricots

• 2 teaspoons Agave nectar

• 4-5 tablespoons Water

To make Melted Chocolate:

• 2 tablespoons virgin Coconut oil

• 2 tablespoons raw Cacao powder

• 1 tablespoon Agave nectar

Method

To make the Hearts:
Grind the Pumpkin seeds into a flour. Add the Chia to the Orange juice and stir, let it soak for about 10 minutes. Now add the Pumpkin seed flour and Chia gel with the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and process until you have a rather loose dough.

Spread the dough evenly on a teflex sheet using a spatula, put on a mesh tray and let it dry in the dehydrator for 8 hours. Remove the teflex sheet after about 6 hours. You do this by carefully folding the side of the teflex sheet underneath the dough, and slowly pull it to expose. Or, put another tray on top and flip!

When the dough has become "leather like", use a heart shaped cookie cutter and start stamping the dough!

To make Melted Chocolate:
Melt the Coconut oil in a water bath or in the dehydrator. Add the Cacao and Agave, stir by hand. Wait until the chocolate thickens before you dip the hearts. Sprinkle some Chia seeds over the chocolate covered hearts before the chocolate hardens so they stick to the chocolate.
