How to Make Chocolate Energy Bars

If you compare these chocolate energy bars to similar fruit/nut bars sold at the store, you are going to discover that they taste better, are nutritionally superior, and probably cheaper to make at home. You will need: 2 cups chopped, pitted Medjool dates, 2 cups raw cashews, 1 cup raw or roasted unsalted, almonds, 3/4 cup high-quality unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Guittard Cocoa Rouge), 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 1 to 2 tablespoon cold espresso coffee or water, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or 1/4 teaspoon fine salt) and a very small pinch cayenne.
