Most of these ingredients can be found at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods. Trader Joe's has excellent deals on bagged nuts. The only problem with these snacks is making them last! They're so delicious it's hard to have just one. They are guaranteed to be more healthy than most power bars in any grocery store and they're cheaper too!
1/4 c hazelnuts
1/4 c pecans
1/4 c walnuts
1/4 c pumpkin seeds
5-6 dates (take the pit out)
tbsp coconut oil (unrefined)
unsweetened coconut flakes (whole foods sells them already bagged)
unsweetened cacao powder, cinnamon, ground coffee - or any powdered flavoring you like
Grind all nuts in a food processor till they begin to look powdery and all large pieces have been ground down. Set aside in a mixing bowl. Heat the oil in the microwave till liquid. (Coconut oil is a solid at room temp and a liquid when heated.) Grind dates and coconut oil in food processor. Add date mixture to nut mixture. Add powdered flavorings to taste. Mix all ingredients together. (I find it easiest to do by hand.) Roll into small balls or bar shape. Roll the balls in coconut shavings and store in refrigerator. When the coconut oil gets cooled and returns to it's solid state, the balls will stick together better.
Voila! Super yum!
