biscuit base
  1. In a small bowl mix the chia (or flax) seeds with water and leave aside for 10 minutes to form a gel.
  2. Place the oats in a food processor and blitz for a few seconds to form a flour. Add the rest of the biscuit ingredients (including the chia gel) and quickly blitz until combined into a soft dough.
  3. Shape the dough into a ball and place between two flat sheets of baking paper. Flatten the dough and roll to a thickness of about 4mm. Using a knife cut the dough into strips of approximately 1.5cm by 5cm.
  4. Lay the strips on a baking tray and bake in the oven at 170 degrees celsius for 20 minutes or until golden. All to cool on a rack.
  5. While the biscuits are baking, heat the dates and water until softened (around 5 minutes). Transfer to a processor, add the vanilla extract and blitz to a smooth paste. Allow to cool.
  6. Use a knife to spread a layer of date ‘caramel’ over each biscuit. Once finished, cover and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to set.
  7. Break the chocolate into small pieces and gently melt in a glass bowl placed over a pan of boiling water. Stir continuously until melted.
  8. Line a tray with parchment and take the caramel biscuits from the freezer. Dip each one into the chocolate using two forks until covered. Store in the fridge or freezer.
