I was looking for a replacement for candy bars and found it! Be careful because they are delicious but high in calories from all the nuts. I was looking for a replacement for candy bars and found it! Be careful because they are delicious but high in calories from all the nuts.
Number of Servings: 6


    1/4 cup Almond Flour
    1 tablespoon Honey
    6 Dates
    1/4 cup Dried Cherries
    3/4 cup mixed nuts
    1/2 bar Extra Dark Chocolate


While these bars do not need to be refrigerated, you may want to keep them there so the thin layer of chocolate does not melt. Enjoy your new health friendly candy bars!


1. Place chocolate in a glass dish, preferably one that is flat so you can roll the bars in the chocolate. Place dish in pan of hot water (low heat). Water should come up about half way on edges of bowl. Melt chocolate but be sure not to burn the chocolate. Stir often.

2. While the chocolate melts, blend the dates in a food processor to make a paste. Remove and dice dried cherries in food processor into small pieces.

3. Combine all ingredients except the chocolate. Best to mix by hand, blend together well.

4. Mold into 6 small bars by hand (Tip: if mixture isn't sticking together, add more honey or blended dates to the batch). Roll the bars in the bowl of melted chocolate to cover.

5. Place on a cookie sheet (or sheet of tin foil for easy removal and clean up) and place in refrigerator until hard.

(6. Optional - Remove glass bowl from water bath. After bowl cools down slightly, lick chocolate bowl clean!)

Serving Size: Makes 6 small bars

    Tip 3: Freeze bars for about 5 or 10 minutes before adding chocolate. They will be eas - 5/26/16

  • These sound good, except for the chocolate. I wonder, can you leave the chocolate out? It doesn't appear to be used to hold anything together. - 6/19/12

    I think if you made the bars sticky enough, you could leave the chocolate out but they will still be sticky to the touch though.
