Ingredients
  

Hemp and macadamia bliss balls

  • 1/2 cup macadamias
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 7 fresh dates stones removed

Date, macadamia, sunflower and sesame slice

  • 250 g dried dates pitted, chopped
  • 2 tbsp ghee or butter
  • 1/2 cup macadamias finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds

Instructions
 

Hemp and macadamia bliss balls

  • Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Roll approximately one teaspoon of mixture into balls and refrigerate until ready to pack.

Date, macadamia, sunflower and sesame slice

  • Line the base of a 24cm x14cm loaf tin with baking paper. Place the chopped dates and ghee or butter in a saucepan and place over medium heat. Stir until the ghee or butter melts. Once the butter has melted, cover, reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes until mixture is soft and combined. Keep the lid on while not stirring.
  • Meanwhile, heat a heavy based pan over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes. Add the macadamias, sunflower and sesame seeds and cook, stirring, until golden for about 4-5 minutes. Stir the macadamias and seeds into the date mixture and press into the prepared tin. Smooth down with the back of a spoon. Refrigerate until cold then chop into 3cm x 1cm rectangular pieces. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
