14 dates, pits removed
1/4 cup Toasted Coconut butter
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 Tbsp local honey optional
In a food processor, pulse the dates with the coconut butter and almonds until the mixture is well combined and in small chunks.
Add the protein powder and the salt. Pulse again. The almonds will release their natural oils as they are processed and the mixture will come together like a sticky ball.
Add a little honey or stevia to taste and pulse to combine. Firmly press the mixture into a loaf pan or use a piece of parchment paper shape into a rectangle. Let it firm in the refrigerator for about an hour.
Unmold and cut into 1 inch squares with a sharp knife.

1/2 cup almond meal or finely ground almonds
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup raisins, dried currants or blueberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup Toasted Coconut coconut butter
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp sea salt
Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
Combine the first six ingredients and salt in a large bowl. Warm maple syrup, add vanilla and mix completely. Pour over the nut mixture and stir until thoroughly coated. If any of the ingredients are still dry, add additional maple syrup to coat completely. Warm coconut butter and incorporate into the mixture.
Line an 8X8 baking dish with parchment paper and press the mixture into the pan. Use a rolling pin or glass to pack it tightly so the bars will stay together after baking. Bake at 350 degrees until the edges are golden (12-15 minutes). Remove from the oven and let cool completely before cutting with a sharp knife. Store at room temperature.
