  • 2 ounces dark chocolate
  • 1.5 ounces cacao nibs
  • 3.5 ounces maple syrup
  • 3.5 ounces cherries dried, and/or goji berries
  • 2.5 ounces walnuts
  • 2.5 ounces hazelnuts
  • 2.5 ounces almonds
  • 2.5 ounces all-purpose flour
  • 1.5 ounces pistachios
  • 1.5 ounces ginger crystallized
  • 1 orange peel
  • 1 lemon peel


  • Preheat the oven to 350 ºF (175 ºC).
  • Prepare a tray with parchment paper.
  • Grind the orange and lemon zest avoiding the bitter white part.
  • Coarsely chop the almonds, hazelnuts, and walnuts. I use a blender on minimum speed for 10 seconds.
  • Mix all the ingredients except the chocolate in a bowl with a spoon.
  • Melt the chocolate in a water bath or the microwave for 3 minutes.
  • Add it to the mix using the spoon, and then use your hands as soon the mixture has cooled down (approx 10 seconds).
  • Mix everything until you obtain a homogeneous mixture.
  • With floured hands, form a ball and place it on a pan with parchment paper. Flatten it a little bit with the palm of your hands.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for about 40 minutes.


Watch out the oven from minutes 30 to 40 to ensure it doesn’t burn.
Take it out of the oven and let it cool completely before serving.
Let it cool completely before serving.
Feel free to make it without the grazing is just as good.
