Ingredients

  • 30 g Almonds leave some almond flakes for garnishing
  • 30 g Peanuts
  • 20 g Hazelnuts
  • 20 g Sunflower Seeds
  • 10 g Pitted Dried Cherries
  • 15 Pitted Dates
  • 1/2 Lime juiced
  • 250 ml Water
  • 10 g Agar-Agar

Instructions

  • Put cherries, dates, almonds, peanuts in a blender. Mix well. Don't bring to a state of paste, small pieces of nuts should remain.
  • Boil 250 ml of water and add agar-agar, boil for 2-3 minutes stirring constantly. Then cool slightly and add to the blender. Mix again.
  • Cover food container with baking paper. Distribute resulting mix evenly in a food container, lay on top a whole hazelnut, sunflower seeds, and little almond flakes.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Notes

If your mix turns out to be too liquid, you need to add more nuts or dates to dry it. This should be a thick paste with slices of nuts and cherries, which easily takes any shape and does not crumble.
You can use different combinations of nuts, everything that is at your fingertips.
