Prep time
Total time
Serves: 15 bars
  1. Place the dates in your food processor and process until they begin to come together into a ball. Add the cocoa powder and salt and process to combine.
  2. In a small saucepan or in the microwave, heat the hazelnut butter and honey together until warm. Pour into the food processor, and pulse until all is well mixed.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a lightly greased and foil-lined 9x9-inch pan. Using a spatula, pack the mixture and even it out.
  4. Freeze to set for 15 minutes.
  5. Lift the mixture out, peel off the foil and cut into 15 bars. Store in an airtight container or bag in the refrigerator to keep fresh, or in the freezer for longer term storage.
*No hazelnut butter on hand? Make your own by processing about 2 cups of hazelnuts until they form a paste and eventually release their oils. You can also follow this easy hazelnut butter recipe.
