Silver Linings: Study Yum

When your brain seems to need a little boost, and you feel ready to reach out for a candy bar or a cup of coffee with a shot of whatever-sticky-stuff, you can instead treat yourself to a delicious treat based on chocolate, nuts and dried fruits – with some powerfoods for an added bit of bazinga.

I call it “Study Yum”, because it is filled with elements that are beneficial for the brain, and it tastes amazing at the same time – and it’s really easy to make, you only need a food processor (small quantities might work with a decent mixer as well).

200 g dark chocolate, melted
500 g of dates, pitted and chopped
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
5 tablespoons of goji berries
50 g of melted butter
25 g of melted coconut oil (or more, replacing all of the butter)
5 tablespoons of almonds
5 tablespoons of walnuts
50 g of chopped apricots
warm water, if necessary for blending

Simply add all solid elements to a food processor, then add the liquid elements. Keep blending until it becomes a paste (add water if necessary for the texture). Scoop on a sheet of aluminum foil to make a roll out of it, then place in the refrigerator for a few hours so that it can harden out. Enjoy!
