Nakd at Home

A post on the WLR forum reminded me that a while ago I bought ingredients to try and make my own Nakd bars so I decided tonight I'd give it a go!

I used a Kenwood mini chopper and a silicone mini muffin tray
Blended:
15g brazil nuts
25g cashew nuts
8g dried cherries
37g dried apricots
5g apple and grape juice
1tsp cinnamon powder

I just blended it for ages until it was as finely chopped as possible then packed it into the muffin tray with the back of a spoon and I'm leaving in the fridge overnight. I only made enough to fill six mini muffin holes as a test.
The taste is brilliant! I think they may be a bit more moist than the Nakd ones - but I find the new range to be quite greasy anyway.

I think these may become a bit of a habit!

My ingredients were loosely based on the Nakd gluten free bars ratio's of just under or just over 50% nuts and 50% fruit - I started with 50/50 and added 1 extra apricot, cinnamon and a dribble of fruit juice, blended again and was happy enough with texture/taste so left it at that.







Excited to see what they are like tomorrow! Think I'll try making another lot with a wee bit of protein powder added in.
