Packed with nutrient-dense almonds, walnuts, cacao and chia seeds, these no-bake bars are the perfect afternoon snack!


  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates, packed
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 5 tbsp cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt (plus more for sprinkling)
  • 1 tbsp water (if needed)


  1. Line an 8 x 8in pan with parchment paper or plastic wrap and set aside.
  2. Place all ingredients in a large food proccesor and process for a couple minutes or until the "dough" forms a ball. If it's too crumbly, add 1 tbsp water. You want the nuts in small pieces, so you may need to move everything around with a fork and keep blending.
  3. Remove dough from food processor and press into lined pan until smooth and even. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
  4. Freeze for at least two hours before cutting into 8-10 bars.
  5. Store bars in fridge or freezer.
