Pistachio No Bake Squares
This is a Vegan gluten free recipe that tastes creamy and morish. I have used butter in this version because I don't like coconut butter. The recipe was adapted from "the green life"
- 12 pitted dates fresh
- 1/2 cup raw pistachios
- 20 gm cacao powder / or dutch cocoa 1 Tablespoon
- 20 gm chia seeds 1 Tablespoon
- ½ tsp spirulina powder - or 2 pistachio paste
- 1 pinch sea salt
- 2 whole ripe avocados pitted
- 80 gm cashews raw
- 200 gm nutelex or coconut butter
- 65 ml non dairy milk ¼ cup
- 40 ml honey or maple syrup
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- 150 gm pistachios Crushed roasted
You will need a small square pan 7 in or 17 cm tin and a refrigerator!
To make the crust place the pistachios in your food processor and pulse until they are crushed and start to form a flour. Add the other ingredients and blend until everything is combined. The texture should be smooth and sticky. If the paste is too dry, add a couple dates.
Press into the bottom of a squared pan and set aside in the fridge while you are preparing the filling.
To make the filling
Throw all of the ingredients into your blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy .
Spread the filling evenly onto your crust. Top with some crushed pistachios and cacao nibs.
Put back in the fridge and let sit for 3-4 hours. Slice into squares and keep chilled
This recipe is gluten-free, refined-sugar free, raw and vegan. You can keep the squares in the freezer if you need to.
