Chocolate Hazelnut Energy Bars

These hazelnut energy bars are addicting!

If you have ever had Nutella, and been missing the taste, this recipe will be exciting for you!

For me, the secret is buying roasted hazelnuts. I have tried roasting them myself, but haven't gotten that quite right.

You can check off the healthy foods of nuts, flax, and a fruit with this tasty snack!
See Dr Greger's Daily Dozen.

Chocolate Hazelnut Energy Bars / "Nutella" Squares
1/2c walnuts
3/4c hazelnuts, roasted*
1/2c flaxseed, ground
3/4c dates, pitted
1/4c cocoa, unsweetened
1 Tbsp water

Blend nuts, flax, and dates in a food processor ~ about 2 min. Then add cocoa and water to prevent cocoa from coming out the tiny openings of your food processor.

Form dough into whatever shape you like! It was fun pressing into a 9x9" pan and cutting into squares. Freezing briefly (20 min) before cutting helps, but is not necessary. Enjoy!

*remember, roasted hazelnuts are key!

Try other flavors! (I call these "Laraballs"...after Larabars :) )
