Everything is BETTER with Chocolate
And I haven't even gotten started on the benefits of the nuts used! Or the cinnamon! Or any of the other ingredients!
1 cups walnuts (I think cashews would be to die for, but all I had was walnuts on hand)
1 1/2 cup pitted dates
4 TBSP Ghirardelli Unsweetened Cocoa powder (I used regular, but dark chocolate would be yummy too!)
1 tsp Frontier vanilla
1/4 tsp. sea salt (or to taste)
I used my Ninja to whip up this bit of heaven. The pulsing feature worked great! I was happy with the consistency of these. Press in to a bar pan to thickness desired. Refrigerate and cut. This recipe should make about 6 bars the size of regular Larabars. Wrap in parchment paper or put in a sealed glass container. Keep refrigerated.
I tried this chocolate version entice my boys to give them a whirl. They passed my taste test... how about yours?
