No-Bake Date Bars

Yumm. I got this recipe from my mom who got it from someone on facebook… or something like that. Basically, I have no idea where it originated. I tweeked it a little bit for allergies and taste preference.

Eventually I would like to make this recipe with nuts that have been soaked and dehydrated first to help improve digestion and absorption. I’m currently hung up on the dehydrating step 😛

3/4 cup shredded coconut
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp cocoa powder (optional)

In food processor, chop the nuts and coconut until fine.
Add the dates, coconut oil, water, and cocoa powder and pulse until a dough forms.
Press into 8×8 baking dish and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Keep these refrigerated.
