Preparation Time: 20 minutes

1. First grind up the almonds and chocolate together until fine– but not too fine.

2. Leave half of the almond-chocolate mixture in the food processor and set the other half aside.

3. Add half a teaspoon of sea salt, 2 cups of dates,1/2 cup shredded coconut and 2 heaping tablespoons of almond butter and process until combined. Transfer into a large bowl.

4. Now process the remaining chocolate-almond mixture, sea salt, dates, coconut and almond butter. Add to the large bowl.

5. Wet your hands, further combine the mixture, and press firmly into a parchment lined 13×9 pan. Let the parchment hang over the ends so that you can lift the bars out.

6. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. Lift the bars out of the pan and slice into desired size.

I don't have dates in, but I do have date paste. Will that work? How much should I use? Thanks

I am curious about the calories and most of all the carbs in these recipes. Have any idea? They look and sound so good.

Love the sound of the recipe I am wondering if I could use my Blend-tec for this instead of a food processor. Anyone try that yet?

I'm allergic to almonds, but I bet peanuts and peanut butter could be substituted.

So, I pitted my dates then went for my Almonds to discover that some bugs had gotten into the bag :(

I used 1/3 cup of coconut flour (I half'd the recipe too) and peanut butter instead of Almond butter.

They are currently chilling in the fridge but I had to steal a small bite. They are amazing! Thank you for sharing!
