I made these one night when Rowan and I were both craving something chocolatey. I had everything in my cupboard and they only took about 15 minutes to whip up. They are so delicious, plus they are gluten-free. They get they’re sweetness from the dates so no added sugar. I love these “Lara” bar recipes because you can make a ton variations like Cashew Lemon, or Chocolate Chip Cookie.
Double Chocolate Brownie “Lara” Bars
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup almonds
1 cup pitted dates
1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
water if necessary
Combine all of the ingredients (except water) in a food processor. Process until mixture holds together. If the mixture is too dry, add a little water. Dump mixure onto a some wax paper and flatten out into a square about 1 inch thick. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes until firm. Slice into squares.
