Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 9


  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 200 g dates
  • 300 g mixed nuts
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil


  • Place the whole / chopped nuts in a food processor, (use a mixture of any - I had almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts). Pulse a few times to break down to a fine consistency.
  • Add the dates, pulse again to combine add a splash of water if needed. 
  • Place the mixture into a suitable baking tray/silicone tray ready to set in the fridge while you melt the chocolate topping. 
  • Place 100g bar dark chocolate, (broken into small pieces), in a bowl over a pan of boiling water (don't allow the water to touch the bottom of the bowl). 
  • Add a tbsp coconut oil - this will help to make it a good pouring consistency. 
  • Pour equal amounts over your nut and date mixture and leave to set in the fridge overnight.
  • Cut the bars into your desired shape and size.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 4 days in a suitable container.
