1 cup fresh Medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1/2 cup finely shredded carrot
1/4 cup crystallized ginger, chopped small
In the bowl of your food processor, mix together the nuts, hemp hearts, and dates. Process until the pieces are all uniform in size and a sticky dough has formed. Add the coconut oil and cinnamon then process well until combined. Add the shredded coconut, carrots, and ginger; pulse just until incorporated, but not too much that the texture is too soft.
Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and pour the dough out onto it. Shape the dough into one large rectangle and refrigerate until firm, about 5-10 minutes. Slice the bar into desired shapes. *You can also roll this dough into balls straight from the food processor.
These raw bars should keep in the refrigerator, in an airtight container, for at least a week or up to a month in the freezer.
