I am insanely picky when it comes to sweets and cakes. I actually really often say no to all the cake you are offered everwhere. Sometimes I really hate it, since I am afraid people think I do it because I want to show off, get attention or – worst of all – don’t appreciate them offering it to me. But really, I am completely honest when I tell you I am just picky – and I don’t get the idea of filling my body with rubbish if I don’t even enjoy it.

On the other hand, if it is something I really like I am definitely not fanatic. And I am a firm believer that desserts are a necessity in life! Period.

My mind already wanders off to the world of big soft cookies, ice cream and molten chocolate cakes…

Jeg er ufatteligt kage- og slikkræsen. Jeg takker faktisk virkelig ofte nej til alle de søde sager, man konstant tilbydes. Hvilket kan være utroligt træls nogle gange, for jeg er så bange for, at folk tror jeg gør det fordi jeg vil have opmærksomged eller vise mig eller – værst af alt – ikke værdsætter det arbejde, de har lagt i det. Men for at være et hundrede procent ærlig – jeg er bare virkelig kræsen. Og jeg gider ikke spise usunde ting, jeg ikke nyder.

På den anden side, hvis det virkelig er noget, jeg kan lide er jeg ikke fanatisk! Livet er for kort til at leve uden lækkerier, siger jeg med tankerne allerede på vej til drømmeverdenen af store bløde cookies, is og flydende chokoladekager…

Then I thought what do you actually like? And then it hit me – anything healthy and healthified. I know, I know. I sound fanatic. But really, there’s a reason all the recipes on this blog are some degree of healthy.

I simply like the taste of healthy desserts.

And I mean it when I say any degree of healthy. Sometimes I just cut out the flour but keep the butter like in my grain free apple pie. Sometimes I go paleo or vegan like this chocolate cake. Sometimes things are just lower in bad fats like this ricotta cake.

But sometimes I like to go all in! Like these super food bars.

Så var det jeg tænkte, ”hvad kan du egentlig sådan rigtig godt lide?”. Og så slog et mig – alt, der er lavet sundt eller bare sundere. Jeg ved det, jeg ved det… Jeg lyder utroligt fanatisk. Men ærligt, der er en grund til at alle opskrifter på denne blog er en eller anden grad af sund.

Jeg kan simpelthen godt lide smagen af sunde søde sager.

Når jeg siger en eller anden grad, mener jeg det virkelig. Nogle gange er det for mig nok bare at undgå det hvide mel, som i denne korn-frie æbletærte. Andre gange laver jeg tingene palæo eller veganske. Nogle gange skal tingene bare være mindre fede, som denne ricotta kage.

Men nogle gange går jeg all in! Som ved de her superfood barer.

Oh my… These are incredible. Not lying here. I finally jumped on the sprouting bandwagon and made sprouted buckwheat. I really don’t know why I didn’t do that before. That stuff is seriously amazing (and insanely versatile – I’ve been eating it with everything). And so healthy packed with proteins and enzymes, gluten free, wheat free, and, and, and…

Additionally these bars contain a lot of healthy plant based fats (from the almond butter and coconut oil) and antioxidants (from the cocoa and goji berries) – oh, and they are sweetened with dates.

Enjoy!

Jesus, de her er lækre. No joke. Jeg er langt om længe hoppet med på spire-bølgen og har spiret mine egne boghvedefrø. Seriøst, hvorfor gjorde jeg ikke det før. De små guldkorn er jo fantastiske (og utroligt alsidige – jeg har spist dem på alt de sidste par dage). Og super sunde, pakket med proteiner og enzymer, gluten frie, korn frie, og, og, og…

Oveni får du i de her barer en masse sundt plantebaseret fedt (fra mandelsmøren og kokosolien) og antioxidanter (fra kakaoen og gojibærne) . og så er de sødede med dadler.

Velbekomme!

Super Food Bars w/ Sprouted Buckwheat & Goji Berries

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours

Yield: 10 bars

Delicious sweet super food bars with cocoa, goji berries, almonds, dates and sprouted buckwheat. Vegan, gluten free and raw.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup buckwheat groats (OR 1 ½ cup sprouted buckwheat)
  • 1/3 cup (70mL / 40 g. / 4 pieces) medjool dates (or other big soft dates)*
  • 1/3 cup (70mL / 80g.) almond or brazil nut butter
  • ¼ cup (60mL / 40 g.) virgin coconut oil
  • 20 g. raw dark chocolate (preferably sugar free)
  • 2 tbsp. raw cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp. goji berries
  • 40 grams raw dark sugar free chocolate OR 2 tbsp. coconut oil, 1 tbsp. honey and 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • Optional: freeze dried berries, chopped nuts or more goji berries for garnish

Instructions

  1. SPROUT THE BUCKWHEAT**: Rinse the buckwheat groats very well. Place the buckwheat groats in a bowl and cover completely with water. Let soak over night. The day after rinse very well again and place the groats in a sieve in a big bowl until they begin to sprout – this takes two days. Rinse very well at least twice a day.
  2. In a food processor blend together dates and nut butter until smooth.
  3. Melt together the coconut oil, dark chocolate and cocoa powder in a small saucepan. Stir in the date-nut paste and lastly stir through the sprouted buckwheat and goji berries.
  4. Pres the mass out into a small dish covered in wax paper and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  5. Melt the 40 grams of chocolate over a water bath or melt together the coconut oil, honey and cocoa powder and pour the mixture over the bars. Eventually garnish with berries or nuts. Refrigerate for anther hour.
  6. Cut into 10 bars. Store in an airtight box in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Notes

* If you can’t get soft dates, just soak them over night ** If you already have sprouted buckwheat in the fridge, this step can be skipped.
