Pistachio Cinnamon Fudge Bars


Ingredients

1 ten oz container (or 1.5 cups) pitted organic dates 

2 tsps unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tsps ground cinnamon 

2 tsps coarse sea salt 

2 tsps flax seed flakes 

2 tsps unrefined coconut oil 

1 tbsp pistachio crumbs (pounded pistachios)

2 additional tbsp of pistachio crumbs for rolling the bars in

Directions

  • In a food processor, combine all ingredients & pulse until a fine mixture forms
  • Add more coconut oil if the mixture is too dry (it should look moist, but not wet)
  • Using your fingers, form small rectangular bars with about 1 spoonful of the mixture for each
  • Put the remaining pistachio crumbs in a small sandwich bag
  • Add the bars one at a time to the bag & shake it so the pistachio crumbs cover each bar
  • Store in the fridge
