Servings: 1 9x9 pan
Preparation Time: 1 hour 5 minutes (soaking time included)

Soak the nuts and dates in warm water for about an hour. Remove the pits from the dates.

In a food processor, blend the nuts, coconut, cocoa, and coffee together. Add the pitted dates, coconut oil, vanilla, sweetener, and water and pulse until combined. The dough will be sticky.

Grease a 9×9 glass dish with coconut oil and then dump the mixture in there. Using a spatula (or your fingers), press the dough into the dish until it is packed firmly. Chill in the fridge or freezer for a couple hours before cutting.

I made these - taste good but must have used too much water (2 TBLSP), they never got firm enough to hold as a bar, but can still eat them with a fork!

Are these raw nuts or roasted?

If you leave out the coffee, would 1TBSP be the right amount of water? I have not tried these yet. Thank You

This is a lovely recipe. YUMMY!!

Using what we had on hand:

(I do not use coffee, so omitted that.)

We used 2 1/4 cups of various nuts and sunflower seeds, soaked for a few hours, then TINY sprouted overnight. (Walnuts. pecans and other nuts won't "sprout", yet are better for you if pre-soaked. Almonds from America are "pasteurized" and don't sprout.)

My version was more moist, and it didn't firm up, so we just ate it with a spoon or fork. Which is the way we like to eat it.
we used Stevia drops to sweeten. It is fine without vanilla.

BLESSINGS!
