  • 2 cups dates (I used 20 mejool dates, but I think other types should work fine)
  • 1 1/4 cup unsalted peanuts
  • 3 TBS mini chocolate chips
  • 1 pinch sea salt (to taste)


  • Line a 8x8inch pan with parchment paper.
  • Soak the dates in warm water for 10 minutes if they aren't soft. Dry them off with paper towels.
  • Add the dates and peanuts to a food processor and pulse on high power until you have a nice soft paste. Scrape the sides and bottom with a rubber spatula as needed.
  • Put the bowl into the fridge to chill for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the mini chocolate chips to the mixture (I saved about 1/2 TBS for the top of the bars), and pulse them into the mixture, or fold them in with a rubber spatula.
  • Press the mixture into the prepared pan, evenly. Press additional chocolate chips to the top of the bars.
  • Place the bars in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Cut the bars and enjoy.
