Super Power Slice

 

  

My kids are big talkers. I swear my thoughts pack up, slam the door to my brain and stomp down the stairs because they can’t compete. Is it time to give up now and have a mojito?

Ok so I’ve had my whinge.

I am constantly astounded by what women put themselves through. Tirelessly and without hesitation we put our greatest desires and needs on the back burner to ensure that those surrounding us have what they need, have love, have food and clothing and shelter.

I’m not sure about you, but I didn’t sign anything to say that I was not important and that what I wanted no longer counts!

I’m making a declaration right here and right now to all 3 of my followers 😉 that I am putting myself first! I will ensure that I am living the life I desire and am doing it with love and gratitude so I can set an example for my children to do the same for themselves. I will do this to the best of my ability, with purpose, love and joy. I am enough.

Enough of the woo woo stuff!

This, to me is more powerful for my children to see from me rather than a mum that is “pretending” to have it all, be strong  and have her shit together. A woman that is true to herself is a powerful thing.

Sorry going kumbaya on you again.

I have been so blessed to have met some amazing women over the last couple of years and each has a story of their own. These women have a super power (some have two or three!) that they use on a daily basis to get through the shitty times, the tough moments and the grind of everyday life.

This delicious slice adapted from a recipe by one of these most amazing women, is so easy to make and you can add anything you like to it to change it up. I make this and give it to my kids in their lunch boxes… and usually ensure that quality control is undertaken by consuming at least 3 pieces before putting it in their lunch… what???

Lets Slice!

Stuff You Put In

  • 1/2 cup medjool dates (pitted)
  • 1/2 cup of dried apricots (sulphite free if you can get ’em) or any other dried fruit like cranberries, cherries, inca berries.
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 cup of nuts – can use macadamias, cashews, almonds, walnuts, brasil nuts or a mix.
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup goji berries
  • 2 tbsp raw honey

Sir Mix-a-lot 

  • Put all the stuff in your food processor and mix until well combined and looks almost like a fine crumb. If you like big chunks then stop at your desired consistency.

Miss Slice and Dice

  • Line a small rectangle dish or baking tray with baking paper and press the mix into the dish/pan until firmly packed down.
  • Refrigerate for a couple of hours or until set – if you have the will power!
  • Slice and dice to serve!

Variations: 

  • Instead of cacao powder you could use a chocolate protein powder. 
  • If you can tolerate chia seeds (which I can’t as they seem to upset my tummy) you could use 1/4 cup shredded coconut and 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • You could roll the mix into balls and coat in desiccated coconut
