Recipe Notes

When you are pulsing the dates & cocao, you will need to stop the blender and redistribute the dates (or if you are using a Vitamix, use the insert) otherwise you will overwork the blender and may smell it burning or see smoke. Don't worry most blenders have an auto-shut off to avoid the risk of overheating.

I ended up doing this in batches and mixing by hand because I didn't want as much oil as last time because it made the bars too greasy.

I added Maca Powder for an extra energy boost.
