I love experimenting with bars these days. Dates are a nice base because they are pretty neutral in flavor so throw in other items you enjoy and see how it goes!
With the coconut oil, mango and macadamia nut, it turns these bars into some sort of buttery bliss. Yum...
Mango Macadamia Coconut Bars
1/2 cup dried mango
17 pitted dates
1/2 cup unsalted macadamia nuts
1/4 cup unsalted almonds
2 tbls coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
In your Ninja (or another snazzy blender), blend up mango and set aside. Next, blend up the dates and set aside. In the large portion of the blender, blend up the almonds and macadamia nuts. Add in the dates, mango, vanilla and coconut oil. It should get pretty well blended but you may need to take the blades out and stir the rest of it up.
Shape into whatever shape you desire, wrap in cellophane and refrigerate.
As always, let me know what you think if you try them or other variations!
Here are some other bars/balls that are my site.
