Ingredients

  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1.5 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut shredded
  • 1/4 cup allergen-free semisweet chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life Mega Chunks)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1.5 cups Medjool dates pitted

Instructions

  1. Start by lining a loaf pan with plastic wrap. Leave overhang on one side for covering later.
  2. In a double boiler (or microwave in short bursts) melt bittersweet chocolate and coconut oil. Stir continuously. Once melted, take off heat and add vanilla.
  3. In a food processor chop almonds into small chunks (not too fine). Transfer to a bowl. Add shredded coconut, chocolate chips and salt and combine.
  4. Whirl the dates in the food processor until smooth (and form a ball).
  5. Pour melted chocolate mix into the food processor, scrape down the dates and process until combined. Add almond mix and pulse a few times.
  6. Transfer mixture back into the bowl and knead a little to mix. Press mixture into lined loaf pan and cover. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
  7. Cut chilled mixture into 8-10 bars or into smaller squares. Store tightly covered in the fridge (2 weeks) or freeze.
