First up.. is HOMMUS!... I'll say that again to those who started drooling at the mouth.. Hommus! The glorious dip that makes dreams come true. Serve it with cucumber & carrot sticks, or even some kale chips if you're wanting something on the saltier side.

*Panko is a Japanese-style breadcrumb and can be found in the Asian section of your local grocery store.
Preheat your oven to 180c, fan setting.
Simply place all of your ingredients (apart from your dark chocolate chips or raisins) in a food processor and whizz until it forms a cookie dough. Once mixed, add your dark chocolate chips or raisins and give it another very quick whizz to mix it all together.
Use a tablespoon to take a scoop of the mixture out one at a time, rolling them into balls and placing them on a lined baking sheet. Once you have about 12 round balls, squish them down to form cookie shapes.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden. Enjoy!
Preheat your oven to 170C and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
Put 3/4 of the dried apricots in a food processor along with the coconut oil, oats, rice syrup, desiccated coconut and salt – blend until completely combined. Once combined, add the last 1/4 of dried apricots and give another very quick whizz to make nice chunks.
Transfer the mixture to the baking tray and press down very well, making sure it is all evenly spread – I use half the baking sheet to make thicker bars.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden. Once baked, remove from the oven and put in the fridge to cool down for 15-20 minutes before cutting into bars.
