Steps

-Preheat oven to 150ºC

-In a food processor, pulse the hazelnuts, sesame seeds, almonds and pecans until they are roughly chopped

-In a small saucepan, gently heat the tahini and Coco Jam; make sure it doesn’t burn! We just want to heat it enough to make it runny

-In a large bowl, mix the crushed nuts, amaranth puffs and almond meal together

-Pour the tahini/coco jam on top and stir well to combine

-Fold in the frozen blueberries, and then flatten on baking paper in a heat proof dish

-Bake for 15 minutes, and while they are still in the dish, slice them into bars

-Allow to cool completely

-Melt the chocolate over a double boiler and coat the slice evenly

-Pop into the fridge to set, then re-slice with a hot, wet knife

-Store in the fridge; will keep for a week!
