Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups organic chopped dates
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup organic almond butter
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2 scoops Innotech fermented greens chocolate protein powder
  • 2 Tbsp raw cocoa powder
  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ¼ cup + 1 Tbsp organic cacao nibs
  • 1 Tbsp organic vanilla extract

  1. Soak dates in 2 cups of boiling water for 4 hours.  Drain and reserve date water for later use.
  2. Place dates in a blender with 1/3 cup of reserved water. Puree until smooth.
  3. Scrape puree into a large bowl. Mix in almond butter, vanilla extract, and coconut oil.
  4. In a separate bowl combine protein powder and cocoa powder, stir well.
  5. Whisk one half of the protein powder/cocoa mix into the wet ingredients. 
  6. Add in the second half of the protein powder/cocoa mix. If the batter has become too thick, you can add 1 Tbsp of the reserved liquid at a time until it is easier to work with.
  7. At this point the batter should resemble clay. Mix in ½ cup shredded coconut and ¼ organic cacao nibs.
  8. Press into a tin foil lined 9”x9” pan, and top with remaining coconut and cacao nibs.
  9. Refrigerate overnight.
  10. Once the batter has set, cut into bars and store in an air tight container in the fridge.
