Vegan | Sugar - Free | Gluten - Free
Prep Time : 15 mins
Cook Time : 20 mins
Total Time : 35 mins
Yield : 6 bars
1/2 cup Walnuts
1 cup Dates or Raisins
1 tbsp Almond Butter ( or Peanut Butter )
1/4 cup Chocolate chips ( dark )
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt
In a food processor, add walnuts, raisins, almond butter, vanilla extract, salt and blend on high for 5 mins.
Blend till the mixture is moldable.
Place parchment paper flat on counter top and transfer the blended mix on it. Press with hand or rolling pan to get square shape. ( I used my 3 by 6 mini loaf pan to mold the mixture to final rectangle shape. To fit in that loaf pan, I molded the mixture to 6 by 6 square on the parchment paper. So based on the loaf pan or any other mold you are using, your square dimensions may vary ).
Once you get the square shape, refrigerate for 10 mins.
In meantime, line the loaf pan with parchment paper ( this makes easy to get the final product out of loaf pan ).
Now the cut the square into half and place one half into the loaf pan. Press lightly with hand to get even surface.
Now melt chocolate chips and add a thin layer on top of the first layer ( of the loaf pan ).
Place the loaf pan in refrigerator for 15 mins.
Now add the second half of the square to the loaf pan (i.e., on the top of the chocolate layer ).
Press lightly with hand to get even surface. Now add thick layer of melted chocolate on the third layer.
Sprinkle pinch of salt and crushed walnuts on top of the chocolate layer ( i.e., the final layer ).
Refrigerate for 15 mins.
Now remove the final rectangle carefully out of loaf pan with the help of parchment paper.
Cut into smaller rectangle or squares and serve!
* Basically, you just add layers of blended mix and melted chocolate to the loaf pan. For any shape of pan you use, the process is similar.
VARIATION : Add any nuts of your choice instead of walnuts. Can add as many layers of chocolate as you wish.
STORAGE : Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for a week or in freezer for a month.
