Ingredients

Instructions

  • Remove the pits from the dates and discard.
  • Pulse the dates in a food processor or blender until they form a paste.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the date paste with the chia seeds, coconut oil, and any optional ingredients. It will form a thick dough.
  • Roll this dough into balls or press into the bottom of a glass or silicon baking dish and cut into squares.
  • It can be eaten immediately in dough-form. We prefer to put it in the refrigerator or freezer to give it more of a chewy texture. 

Notes

  • Feel free to use an alternate dried fruit such as raisins, prunes, or apricots to form the paste.
  • These can be wrapped in wax paper or parchment paper and sent for lunches or snacks.
  • For additional calcium, you can add about a teaspoon of eggshell powder!
