Servings: 12


  • 1 1/2 cups medjool dates pitted*
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips dairy-free if needed


  • Prep dish: Line a square or rectangle baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Process nuts: Place coconut, almonds and cashews into food processor fitted with the S-blade and pulse until everything is chopped into small pieces. Place nut mixture in a bowl and set aside.
  • Process dates: Put dates into the food processor and pulse until a paste forms. The dates will probably form into a sticky ball. If they do, break about the ball a bit with your hands.
  • Add nuts and coconut back into the processor with the dates and pulse until well combined.
  • Add chocolate chips and pulse a few more times, until they’re just incorporated.
  • Set and slice: Place in the fridge for 20 minutes to harden up and then slice into bars.
  • To store: Store any leftovers in the fridge with parchment paper between them for 1-2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months.



  • Hard/dry dates: If your dates are hard and dry, you can soak them in warm water for 10-15 minutes to soften. Just drain them well before using.
