Makes 10 bars
What You Need:
Coconut oil, for pan
4-1/2 cups pecans
3/4 cup pitted dates, packed
3/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon maca powder

What You Do:

1. Grease an 8 x 8-inch glass baking dish with coconut oil. In a food processor, process pecans until slightly chunky (do not overprocess into pecan butter). Place 1/2 cup pecans in a separate bowl and set aside.

2. While food processor is running, slowly add dates, rocking base of food processor to combine evenly.

3. Add cacao, cinnamon, maca, vanilla, salt, and cayenne and process again until well combined. Fold in dried fruit, hemp seeds, and remaining pecans.

4. Spread mixture into baking dish, pressing down with your palms. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set, then cut into squares. Serve with non-dairy ice cream or vegan chocolate sauce.

Chef’s Tip
Cacao powder has a deep, rich flavor that works well in hot chocolate, ice cream, and all types of desserts. It’s loaded with magnesium and phenylethylamine, which are great for your heart, brain, and libido.
