Chocolate Cranberry Breakfast Bars
- 20 dates (pitted)
- 1 tbsp flaxseed meal
- 1 tbsp hemp hearts
- 1/2 cup raw cashews
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp dried cranberries
- 2 tbsp pepitas
- 3 tbsp chocolate chips (dairy-free)
In a food processor puree dates, flaxseed meal, hemp hearts, cashews, cocoa powder.
Once the mixture has a consistent texture, add in pepitas and chocolate chips. Pulse and combine with date mixture. Do not over pulse as the chocolate chips and pepitas add another layer of texture.
Lay mixture on parchment paper and form a loaf shape.
Chill in fridge for 20 minutes.
Once thoroughly chilled, use a knife or pizza roller to slice into bars of your desired size.
If you are having a hard time finding vegan chocolate chips, often dark chocolate chips are dairy-free. You can also look for brands like Enjoy Life.
