Black Sesame Cacao Energy Bars

  • Servings: 5 bars or 10 balls

  1. 1 cup pitted medjool dates, loosely packed
  2. 1 cup oats
  3. 1/2 cup cashews
  4. 1/2 cup rolled oats
  5. 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  6. 1/2 tsp sea salt

Let’s not bake:

  • Line a shallow rectangular container with a baking sheet
  • Pulse dates in a food processor until it becomes a thick paste
  • Add remaining ingredients until mixed
  • Scrape paste into the container and press down firmly (fold edges of the baking sheet inwards to make a rectangle if the container size is too large
  • Alternatively, roll the mixture into bite-size balls
