Decadent and rich, these are made with good-fat almonds and antioxidant-laden cacao and sweetened with fiber-rich Medjool dates. They provide whole-food nutrition, so enjoy as a snack or treat. These can be kept at room temperature for a couple of days or will keep for at least a week refrigerated. Ingredient tips: Bob’s Red Mill makes almond meal (flour), but if you can’t find it, just use whole raw almonds and process them into a powder using your food processor. Prep tip: Keep batter from sticking to your hands by lightly coating them with coconut oil, olive oil, or even water.

Directions
  1. Place almond meal, cacao powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Add dates and honey, and mix well. Add crushed walnuts and mix.
  2. Line a loaf or square pan with parchment paper or plastic wrap. Press mixture into bottom of pan. Enjoy immediately, or chill for a firmer texture.
