Ingredients

1 cup almonds
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup dates, roughly chopped
100g solid coconut oil, melted and cooled
100g The Hemp Butter Co Maple Almond Hemp Butter
50g dark chocolate, melted

The combination of almonds and maple syrup in The Hemp Butter Co’s hemp butter really enhances its appeal, mellowing out the stronger hemp flavours and adding a balanced sweetness. A perfect spread, but also lovely in baking – I like it added as a separate element, so you preserve the winning maple flavour.
