These sweet + salty snack bars are super easy to whip together, and perfect for a healthy afternoon treat! They’re both fudgy + crunchy and are chock-full of nutritious ingredients that you can find in bulk at Karma 🙂 Plus – no oven required!

 

Ingredients

⅔ cup pitted soft dates (packed)

¼ c. nut butter of choice (almond or sunflower seed or a mix is amazing!)

⅓ c. cup raw walnuts

⅓  c. raw almonds

¼ c. unsweetened shredded coconut

2 tbsp. pumpkin seeds

1 tbsp. chia seeds

1 tbsp. hemp seeds

1 tbsp. melted virgin coconut oil

1 tsp. vanilla

½ tsp. sea salt

½ tsp. cinnamon

 

In a food processor, add your walnuts + almonds and blend until you have very small pieces. Add in your coconut and seeds and pulse again a few times to combine everything. You should have a mixture that’s the texture of coarse sand. Add in your dates and pulse until they are incorporated, then add the coconut oil, vanilla, salt + cinnamon and mix again. At this point you should have a soft dough that sticks when pressed between your fingers.

Line a loaf pan with parchment (or coat with oil) and press your dough mixture evenly into the pan. Top with extra chopped walnuts, cacao nibs (or chocolate chips) + shredded coconut if desired. Place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes to set, then slice into 12 squares and enjoy!
