Preparation

  1. To the bowl of a food processor, add the almonds, pecans, and dates. Cover and process until a thick dough forms. Firmly press the crust into a lined 9 x 9-inch (23 cm x 23 cm) baking dish.
  2. Melt the coconut butter and pour over the crust. Freeze for 1 hour or until firm.
  3. Add the dates and hot water to the food processor and process until a thick paste forms. Spread date mixture over the frozen bars and set aside in the freezer.
  4. In a microwave-safe dish, combine the chocolate and coconut oil. Microwave in 30-second increments until melted, stirring with a fork until smooth.
  5. Pour the chocolate over the bars and spread in an even layer. Sprinkle coarse sea salt over the top. Freeze until set, about 2 hours.
  6. To serve, remove from freezer and allow to thaw for 10 minutes before slicing into 12 bars.
