Chocolate Almond Coconut Bars

By Victoria Meyers BearShirt


Found this on Tropical Traditions.com www.freecoconutrecipes.com/...

It reminds me of the old Magic Cookie Bars Recipe combined with Lara Bars, only I don't think the recipe calls for enough chocolate, I think I'll probably use a whole bag of Bakers chocolate chunks.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
First grind up the almonds and chocolate together until fine– but not too fine.
2
Leave half of the almond-chocolate mixture in the food processor and set the other half aside.
3
Add half a teaspoon of sea salt, 2 cups of dates,1/2 cup shredded coconut and 2 heaping tablespoons of almond butter and process until combined. Transfer into a large bowl.
4
Now process the remaining chocolate-almond mixture, sea salt, dates, coconut and almond butter. Add to the large bowl.
5
Wet your hands, further combine the mixture, and press firmly into a parchment lined 13×9 pan. Let the parchment hang over the ends so that you can lift the bars out.
6
Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. Lift the bars out of the pan and slice into desired size.
