Servings: 10-12 (depending on how you cut them)
Preparation Time: 10 minutes

  • 2 cups nuts
  • 20 pitted dates (you’ll find these in the dried fruit section of your grocery store)
  • 3/4 cup dried,
    unsweetened coconut
  • 2-3 teaspoons
    coconut oil

Place your nuts in a food processor and run it until you get a pretty fine texture. It’ll take about a minute. Add your dates, coconut, and 2 teaspoons of the coconut oil and pulse until combined. You want it to be a consistency that will stick together, so if you think you need more “glue” add the 3rd teaspoon of coconut oil.

Dump the mixture out into an 8×8 pan and spread it out evenly. Place it in the fridge to harden up a little and then cut into bars or squares. Store in the fridge and enjoy as a nice healthy snack!
