  • 1 ½ cup pitted dates (cut into small pieces)
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  •  cup coconut powder
  •  cup flax seed meal

  • ½ cup roasted Cashews (roughly chopped)

  1. Soften the chopped dates in microwave for 30 seconds, doing this makes dates soft and easy to work.
  2. Blend the dates in the food processor until they become to the paste, this should take about 15 seconds. Add flex seed meal, and cocoa powder and salt to the food processor and blend it until all the ingredients incorporated. This should take about 15 second.
  3. Add the roasted and chopped nuts walnuts, almonds, and cashew nuts. Blended it until all the ingredients incorporated, but nuts should be still chunky this should take about 20 seconds of blending.
  4. Remove the mix from food processor, and make it into 2 balls, roll it into about 1/4-inch-thick, sprinkle the sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds to the rolled bar and lightly press the seeds, so they stay into the bars. Cut them into your desire shape. I decided to cut them in bars.
