These bars were pretty simple to make and what an amazing go-to sweet that freezes beautifully. Excellent “freezer stash”! I am so grateful for Enjoy Life mini dark chocolate chips, almonds, medjool dates and a touch of spice! Life is good.
2 cups whole raw almonds
16 medjool dates, pitted
1 Tbls. vanilla
1 Tbls. pure maple syrup or agave
2 tsp. cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips
1 Tbls. silk creamer or non-dairy milk
1/8 tsp. cayenne or red pepper
In a food processor, pulse almonds until roughly chopped. Transfer 1 cup to a small bowl and set aside. Process remaining almonds until finely ground. Add dates, vanilla, cocoa, agave and salt to ground almonds and process until well combined.
Stir or knead this date mixture into the chopped almonds. On a parchment lined cutting board pat into a rectangle and score 8 bars before chilling in the refrigerator or freezer until firm (about 30 minutes). Melt chocolate in a double boiler or microwave (one minute at a time and stirring well in between). Stir the milk/creamer and red pepper into the melted chocolate. Drizzle melted chocolate over bars and return to fridge or freezer to harden. Cut into bars and store in an airtight container in freezer.
