Fruit and Nut Bar featured on Design*Sponge

June 24, 2013

some of you may remember a month ago i had the honor of being featured on design*sponge! i am still pinching myself that it happened, being a long time reader of d*s i never imagined that my photos would one day be on the site. i thought it would be nice to share some of the photos and a few that didn't make the cut on the blog today. if you are looking for an on-the-go snack, this is a good one!

20 pitted medjool dates
1-2 cups of warm water
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, divided (set aside 2 teaspoons)
1 cup almonds
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup coconut butter
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon cocoa nibs
pinch of salt
  1. line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. set aside 2 sea spoons of shredded coconut and in a shallow bowl soak the pitted medjool dates for 5 mins.
    drain medjool dates. add soaked dates, almonds, shredded coconut, cocoa powder, coconut butter, maple syrup, cocoa nibs and salt into a food processor and pulse until ingredients are mixed – some almonds may not be fully chopped. (you can mix the ingredients further by hand after you’ve given it a few pulses if you wish)
  3. scoop mixture onto lined baking pan and smooth out with hand until it’s level.
  4. refrigerate for 20 minutes until firm.
  5. lift the bars out of the pan and set on a cutting board. use a large knife to cut into bars.
  6. place bars in an airtight container, i like mine kept in the freezer or fridge.
