  • 2 cups medjool dates pitted
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter natural; you can use other nut or seed butters for this recipe
  • 1/2 cup peanuts unsalted; preferably organic
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips or 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3-4 Tbsp water


  1. Place everything (except chocolate chips and water) in a high-powered food processor or a blender that’s okay with processing nut butters.
  2. You will need to process this for a minute or so, until everything has been broken up.
  3. If the dough looks a bit crumbly and dry add 2 Tbsp of water at a time and process for another 30 seconds – 1 minute until a thick dough ball has formed.
  4. You should be able to easily shape and manipulate this. You don’t want it too wet or too dry.
  5. Get an 8x8 dish and line with parchment paper or plastic wrap.
  6. Press your dough down very firm.
  7. Freeze for 1-2 hours, remove from freezer and cut into desired bar size.
  8. Alternatively, you can make these into energy balls.
