1/2cup(strong) cooled brewed espresso or cold brew
1cup raw almonds
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Pinch of sea salt
In a bowl, soak dates in the brewed coffee for 15 minutes. Drain the dates but don’t discard the brewed coffee.
To a food processor, add the dates. Pulse dates for 2 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of the brewed coffee until the dates become a thick caramel-like paste.
Add the rest of the ingredients into the food processor - almonds, cocoa powder, chia seeds and sea salt. Pulse a few times until a dough-like mixture forms. If you want it crunchy, don’t blend for too long.
Form mixture into 1-inch bites by hand. Refrigerate in an airtight container for 1 week or in an airtight resealable freezer bag in the freezer for up to 3 months. Enjoy!
