Here I go again with my handy snack bars. This time chocolate flavored! Why am I such a fan? It’s incredibly easy to make ten at a time so you can take one in your lunch each day in the weeks to come. Easy does it. ; )

1 hour (in the freezer)
ca. 10 bars
A week and a half, in the fridge; you can also freeze them for max. 3 months
large mixing bowl
230 g Medjoul dates
120 g walnuts
150 g mixed nuts
3 heaping tbsp raw cacao powder
40 g barberry berries, or other dried berries of choice – but note that the bars will be less sour
20 ml maple syrup
100 g whole oats
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp coconut oil, softened
½ tsp salt
Pit the dates. Finely grind the walnuts in the food processor, being careful not to blend them into nut butter, and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Roughly chop the mixed nuts using a knife. Puree the dates in the food processor. Combine all of the ingredients in the mixing bowl, mix well and use your hands to knead the mixture into a large ball. Lay the ball on a sheet of parchment paper and flatten using the outside of a spoon. Be sure to press down firmly, otherwise the bars will crumble.
