Chocolate and Coconut Fruit and Nut Bar
- 1 lb. Medjool or Deglet Noor dates, pitted (about 3 cups)
- 1/2 cup raw, unsalted almonds
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp salt, optional
Place two strips of parchment paper inside an 8-inch by 8-inch baking dish. The strips should overlap, forming a plus sign +.
After an hour, remove the dough by lifting up on the parchment paper. Place it on a cutting board. Cut the dough into 8 equal-sized bars. They’ll be about the same size as a store-bought Larabar.
Wrap individually with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to eat.
Probably nothing. They’ve seen their fair share of strange things, such as me traipsing around outside, in my pj’s, camera and plate full of food in hand, trying to get just the right photos.
Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t.
But, most of the time, I do.
