2 cups of whole hazelnuts (preferably roasted without salt and any additional oil)
3 tablespoons of melted coconut butter
30 pitted medjool dates (the large and soft kind, if yours aren't soft, soak them overnight in water)
3 tablespoons of cacao powder
Zest of one orange
3 tablespoons of organic hemp protein powder (optional)
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut (optional)
1/2 cup of cranberries or goji berries
3 tablespoons of maple syrup or 2 tablespoons of honey
Baking sheet & square pyrex
Ground your hazelnuts in your blender. Leave them grainy (not a nut butter!). Take the ground hazelnuts out of the blender and into a bowl.
Mix the melted coconut butter with pitted dates.
Put the nut mix, date mix and everything else into your bowl and mix with your hands.
Place the baking sheet in your pyrex. Press and evenly distribute the yumminess into it. Refrigerate for 20 minutes, then cut into squares and enjoy!
