These are perfect for that 3pm sugar craving, or a perfect snack to take on the go. Like a muesli bar, but minus the nasties, and loaded up with extra chocolately goodness!
Even better they take about 5 minutes to whip up before bed – and then in the morning, you’re delicious treats are ready for your tummy.
Makes 10 bars
½ cup almonds
½ cup desiccated coconut
12 medjool dates
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
1 tbsp water
(optional 2 tbsps of cranberries)
Pit the dates, and blend all ingredients in a food processor for approximately 3-4 minutes, or until the mixture comes together and is sticky to touch.
Press mix firmly into a tin or glass dish, focusing on pressing down the edges.
Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours before cutting and serving, although overnight refrigeration renders the best results.
