Cocoa-Nut Date Sqaures

Makes one 8 x 8in pan
Dates are sure to sate cravings for sweetness, especially when
combined with coconut and chocolate. This treat is a great source of protein, fat and carbs

1/3 cup of walnuts

1/2 cup of organic rolled oats

1/2 cup coconut flakes
2 cups of dates, pitted
My favorite is the soft, fresh Mid Eastern style or Medjool dates
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup flax seed ground
1 tsp cinnamon
Additional cinnamon and cocoa powder

1. Measure the walnuts, oats and coconut into a
food processor and process till mixture resembles
a corn meal texture.
2. Add in the dates, flax, cocoa powder and
cinnamon and process until the mixture comes
together in a ball.
3. Firmly press into an 8 x 8 inch pan and chill for
at least one hour before cutting into small squares
or bars.
4. Sprinkle with cinnamon or cocoa powder and
enjoy.
