Cocoa Almond Bars

cocoaalmondbars

Mmmmm I don’t know about you but anything chocolate is my weakness. These brownie-inspired granola bars definitely hit the spot when I have chocolate cravings.

Combine in a bowl and mix:
1/2 cup of mashed dates (Microwave with ~2 tbsp of water for 40 seconds to soften for easier mashing).
2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup almond butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup almonds, crushed

Bake at 370F for ~23 minutes!
Optional: Melt dark chocolate chips and spread on top after cooled  🙂
