Chocolate, Almond, And Walnuts Energy Bars



These are gluten-free Chocolate, Almond, And Walnuts Energy Bars. These irresistible bars are made with dates, cocoa powder, almond butter, almond meal, and toasted walnuts. In this recipe, I used some lightly toasted walnuts, so the bars have a nice crunch and nutty taste to it. So, do try this healthy alternative to your regular brownies. 

Chocolate, Almond, And Walnuts Energy Bars

Ingredients

1 ½ Cups (135 grams) Toasted Walnuts
15 Medjool Dates (225 grams), pitted and chopped
1 Cup (120 grams) Almond Meal
l
½ Cup (50 grams) Raw Cacao or Cocoa Powder
½ tsp Cinnamon
A Pinch Of Sea Salt
½ Cup Natural/Unsweetened Almond Butter

1 ½ Tbsp Vanilla Paste/Extract

1 to 2 Tbsp Cold Water

½ Cup (45 grams) Toasted Walnuts, coarsely chopped

Method



Combine walnuts, dates, almonds, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and sea salt in a food processor. Pulse and process all the ingredients together until the texture is coarse. Then add almond butter, vanilla extract, and a little water at a time until it reaches a dry but moist dough consistency. Mix in coarsely chopped walnuts, give it a quick pulse, and scrape the dough mixture into the lined pan, press evenly with a rubber spatula, and chill for about an hour before serving.

Note: Toasted Walnuts; preheat oven to 350˚F & bake for about 7 to 8 minutes. Let cool before use.
