  • 1 Cup of loosely packed pitted dates. It's about 20 or so dates. I used Medjool dates.
  • 1/2 C Semisweet Chocolates. Or Dark whatever you prefer. (Not pictured)
  • 1/2 C Hemp Seeds
  • 1/2 C Black Sesame Seeds
  • 1/2 C Sesame Seeds
  • 1/2 C Sunflower Seeds
  • Honey - Drizzle a little bit to make it sweeter or wetter. But it' optional Not pictured


  • Mix all the ingredients together in a mixer. Scrape the sides down and mix all the dates and seeds thoroughly.
  • If you want to use nuts, mix the nuts with dates before adding seeds. If you pinch the mixture and it binds together, then, it's done.
  • Line a glass pan with parchment paper.
  • Pour the mixture in.
  • Using your hands, push down the mixture into the pan to flatten it out.
  • Lift the parchment paper out of the pan, and place it on a cutting board. Using the flat side of the knife, compact it down more.
  • With the edge of the knife, push the edges in to shape it.
  • Cut them in sizes you want and use a spatula to remove them.
  • Wrap them up individually and store in an airlock container.
  • The bars are good for one week in the fridge. You can freeze them too for a month. I wrap them up as pictured, then, stack them up and freeze them in glass lock containers.
