Try this healthy recipe for a great treat and work out snack.

Ingredients:

2/3 cup Camino Organic cocoa powder
1¼ cup almonds, ground
3/4 cup Middle Eastern or Medjool fresh dried dates, pitted (mineral rich source of carbs)
2 tbsp extra virgin organic coconut butter. Gently warmed to melt
1/4 tsp sea salt
Hemp seeds, to sprinkle bars or roll balls in, if desired (Omega 3 rich)

Directions:

1. Process cocoa powder and almonds.
2. Add dates, coconut oil, and sea salt; puree until mixture sticks together. If needed, add a little more coconut butter or dates to adjust texture to desired stickiness and level of sweetness.
3. Roll into one-inch balls, two-inch patties, or press into an 8 x 8 square baking dish and cut into bars. Roll balls/patties in hemp seeds or sprinkle bars. Chill for a minimum of one hour.  Cut bars into desired size and wrap individually.

Store in fridge or freezer for up to two to three weeks—if they last that long!
