I made some raw fruit bars today using Medjool dates, flaked coconut, homemade peanut butter (knew that would come in handy :)) and the Cacao Powder that I had in the cupboard and didn't know what to do with it.

"This is an adaptation to an all-natural bar that is very popular, naturally yummy and very versatile. It tastes like you are eating a candy bar but there is NO Sugar Added -- it's nature's candy!! You don't need sugar because it's already sweet! Quick and easy, great for snacking, a grab and go bar!! Kid-friendly too!! Raw and no baking, no cooking required!!"
• 1 cup chopped dates
• 3/4 cup peanut butter
• 1/2 cup flaked coconut
• 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
• 1 pinch salt (optional)
1. Place the dates, peanut butter, coconut, cocoa powder and salt into a food processor. Cover, and blend until smooth, about 4 minutes. The mixture will be very sticky.
2. Press the mixture into a loaf pan lined with waxed paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Remove the chilled mixture from the pan and slice into 6 bars. Wrap each bar in foil and refrigerate until serving. I made 5 bars, they would have been tiny had I split them into 6. They taste gorgeous and I would highly recommend them. Happy baking all - well you don't have to bake these.
