½ cup boiling water

1 cup buckwheat groats

4 tbsp cacao powder

3/4 cup desiccated coconut

3 tablespoons nut butter

2 tablespoons tahini

OPTIONAL 1/4 an orange, (cut in slices and dried in the oven on a low heat for 30 mins)

2 tablespoons cacao nibs


4 tbsp cacao powder

½ cup desiccated coconut

Zest of half orange (optional)


First up soak the dates in hot water for 10 minutes so they’re nice and soft.

Next add the buckwheat groats to a dry frying pan and gently toast until golden


When they’ve cooled, add them to a processor with the dates and half the water.

Add the dried orange slices, tahini, cinnamon, cacao powder, vanilla, coconut, cacao nibs, almond butter and a pinch of sea salt and whizz all together until a sticky mass.
