I started out with some of my favorite healthy ingredients - almonds, dates, chia seeds, and cacao nibs. I pulsed up the almonds in the food processor first, and then added the rest of my ingredients.
You could either roll the "dough" into balls and put them right into the fridge OR you could form an even layer in a rimmed cookie sheet, and freeze it until its solid enough to cut into perfectly shaped bars.
1/2 cup raw almonds
1 cup dates - pitted and roughly chopped
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup cacao nibs
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp Justin's Honey Almond Butter
A dash of cinnamon
A dash of salt
Makes 6 bars.
A recap: Pulse the almonds through the food processor first. Then add the rest and pulse through until it forms a sticky-dough. You'll know it's the right consistency when you can roll up a ball of the "dough" and it sticks together easily. Transfer dough to a rimmed cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and press into one uniform layer, about an inch thick. Freeze for about 5 minutes, then remove and cut into bars. Go enjoy a little snack attack!
