I'm in the process of getting my recipes all in the same place, so you may have seen these Super Bars before. In fact, I am now realizing that it has been way too long since I've made them. These make an amazing post-workout snack, fast energy at breakfast, they're even rich enough to have for dessert. They are full of good stuff: coconut oil, cacao nibs, nuts. Enjoy!

Super Bars

makes approx. 12 small bars

  • 1/2 cup raw hazelnuts (you could also use almonds)
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped dates (or 10-15 whole pitted dates)
  • 1 cup organic unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup cacao nibs
  • 1 T cacao powder
  • 3 T coconut oil
  • 1 t honey


    Start by grinding the nuts and then add the dates one at a time. I use about 10. I then add the coconut oil until moist and then the rest of the ingredients. That's it!

    Remove mixture from blender (I use and highly recommend a Vitamix) and use your fingers to work the batter in to a small glass baking dish. Flatten.

    Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. You will then be able to cut the mix in to bars. Ta da!

    1. OOOOMMMMGGGGGG that blender is 500 clams! I definitely won't be using a vitamix anytime soon, but maybe I can make it work with my dinky old blender. Where do you get hazelnuts? I find nuts can be so expensive!

      1. they are expensive but i use mine almost every day. love it. as far as nuts go, i get them at either whole foods or for more cheaper at the dekalb farmer's market. nuts can be expensive so you usually save when you buy them in bulk somewhere.
