Method

  • Preheat the oven to 160oc

  • Place the dates in the food processor and process or pulse until they are mainly chopped and rough texture forms. Then add the remaining ingredients and process for a minute or so until a crumbly dough forms.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Dump the dough into the center of the parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll it into a rectangle that is 6” x 10.5”. Cut the dough into 14 bars that are 1.5” x 3”.
  • Bake the bars for 30 minutes (this step helps to make the texture drier and less sticky). Cool the bars to room temperature, then store refrigerated in a sealed container between sheets of wax paper.

Only spread the crackers as thin as the biggest seed and thiner will not hold very well.

Recipe:

Curried Crispy Chickpeas

Perfect protein packed snack buzzing with flavours.

Makes 20 x 40g portion
Total Time: 2hr 55min
Plant based Cooking Course Jay Halford
Prep: 10min + 2hr marinading

Ingredients

Method

  • Firstly, drain the chickpeas and place them into a bowl (this recipe will last for a while as its dry, so it is always worth batch making this and keeping in in an air tight jar)
  • Place all of the ingredients for the marinade into a blender and blend for 1-2 minutes until it is completely smooth
  • Then pour your marinade onto your chickpeas in the mixing bowl and leave for 2 hours covered with a tea towel. This will just allow the marinade flavor to soak right into the chickpeas
  • After the chickpeas have been marinaded place them onto the baking trays (lined with parchment) with the marinade liquid still with them as well.
  • Place them into the oven
  • Bake on 180c for 45minutes until the chickpeas are totally dry and a crunchy texture
  • Make sure you are giving them a shake and a move around every 10 minutes or so when they are in the oven to make sure that they don’t stick to the tray or to each other

With this awesome recipe you would rarely even notice the difference from a normal muffin. They are amazingly light and rise so well with the flaxseed eggs and baking powder. I was very very surprised and happy with the result of this very simple recipe.

Ingredients

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 165c and melt the coconut oil but standing it in a bowl of hot water
  • Combine all of the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well – coconut palm sugar, almond flour, buckwheat flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon and salt
  • Then mix in the flax seed eggs, the melted coconut oil and the vanilla paste
  • Whisk the mix together and add the water slowly just to let it down slightly this will make the muffins lighter and rise better
  • Lightly oil the muffin tins all the way around and then pour in the batter evenly
  • Bake on 165c for 20minutes

Equipment needed:

Additions:

There are so many variations on this recipe and the base recipe can pretty much always stay the same. Here are a few that I have tried:

Baked apple – Make an apple puree and put it through the muffin batter

Sticky toffee muffins – Make a caramel with dates to go on top after they have been cooked, you could even put a spoon full of it in the top of the batter before they get cooked too

Chocolate muffins – just simply add a table spoon of cacao powder to the mix and then make a chocolate sauce to go on the top after they have been cook

Top Tips:

Make the flaxseed eggs well in advance so that you are able to just make this recipe really quick and not have to wait around for the eggs to be ready.
