20 pitted Medjool dates 
1/2 cup hemp seeds
1 1/2 tbsp hemp protein 
1/3 cup tahini
1/2 cup roasted almonds
1/4 cup desiccated coconut
2 tbsp goji berries
3 tbsp coconut oil - melted
2 tbsp sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pepitas
1/2 cup quinoa puffs

90g cacao butter
2 tbsp coconut oil
5 tbsp raw cacao powder
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
A good sprinkling of hemp seeds

Place Medjool dates along with the Hemp Seeds, Hemp Protein, tahini, almonds, coconut, goji berries, and coconut oil into a food processor and combine until dates have broken down but not too much that it becomes a paste. Place the mixture into a large bowl and add the sunflower seeds, pepitas, and quinoa puffs. Mix so it all combines well. Line a tin with baking paper and place the mixture into the tin, pressing down firmly with your fingers. Place in the fridge whilst you make the chocolate topping.

To make the topping melt the cacao butter and coconut oil in a pot on low heat.
Once combined, take off the heat and whisk in the cacao, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Pour over the slice and sprinkle hemp seeds over the top. Lastly, place the slice in the fridge to set for 2 hours.
