Prep Time: 20 min

Freezer time: 30 min

Yield: 14-16 bars


  • 350g fresh dates

  • 1 cup (125g) walnuts

  • 1/3 cup (35g) cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup (75g) chia seeds

  • 1/2 cup (45g) flaked coconut

  • 1/3 cup (60g) chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup (50g) oats

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Remove pits/seeds from the dates and place in a medium bowl. Cover with warm water and let them sit for 10-15min to soften up.

  2. Meanwhile, add the walnuts to a food processor and blend/chop until they become a fine crumb.

  3. Squeeze the excess water from the dates and add to the food processor. Blend everything together until it resembles a paste.

  4. Transfer the paste to a mixing bowl. Add all the other ingredients and combine using a rubber spatula until all the ingredients are evenly distributed in the mixture.

  5. Spoon into a parchment lined pan a press down evenly.

  6. Freeze to set for 30min. Remove and cut into 14-16 bars. Store in the fridge in a sealed container.

Zhuzh it up!

  • Add some cinnamon and ginger or chili flakes to give these bars a special kick in flavour.

  • Change up the chocolate chips to peanut butter or white chocolate or mint or any other of your favourite chocolate chip flavour.

  • Add some seeds, like pepitas or sunflower. I would recommend about 1/4 to 1/3 cup.
