Recipe 26: Superfood Chocolate-Almond Bars

Finding really yummy but healthy snacks can be very difficult. I have been trying to eat as healthy as possible in the last week, so I had to find a creative way to eat some good food nevertheless. I decided to just throw some very healthy ingredients together and make them into a little treat. The result was amazing, and better tasting than any unhealthy food I have ever had!

I first wanted to make some raw bars, but after throwing the ingredients together, I decided to bake it. Best decision ever. As a result, I got some super chewy and sweet fudge-like chocolate bars that are worth dying for.
 What do you need?

  • Dates - 1 cup
  • Almonds, roasted - 1/4 cup
  • Chia seeds - 1 tbsp
  • Coconut oil, melted - 3 tbsp
  • Almond meal - 4 tbsp
  • Almond milk, unsweetened - 1/4 cup
  • Cocoa powder, unsweetened - 1 tbsp
  • Oatmeal, glutenfree - 1/2 cup
Makes 4 pieces. Calories per piece: 270.

There is so much more you could add to this: flax seed, goji berries, coconut flakes, pure (vegan) chocolate chips. Perhaps you could substitute the almond milk for banana! I think that is what I will do next time.

How to make it?
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, or 175 degrees C.
  • In a food processor, mix the dates, chia seeds and almonds. These need some extra cutting. Mix them until they look like this:
  • Then, add all your other ingredients: the coconut oil, almond meal and -milk, cocoa powder, and oatmeal. 
  • Now evenly spread this over the bottom of a baking pan that you have lined with baking paper. You cannot just grease it, you really do need the baking paper. 
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. It will still be soft after it just comes out of the oven, but let it firm up in the fridge or at room temperature.

You can freeze the bars, and they will stay good for a couple of weeks.
