  • Author: Katja from Savory Lotus



  • 1 cup dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter, melted (I use THIS one)
  • 2 TBS almond butter
  • 3 TBS filtered water
  • 1/4 tsp celtic sea salt (like this)
  • 1 cup hazelnuts, raw
  • 2TBS sesame seeds


  1. In food processor, process dates, coconut butter, almond butter, salt, and water until they form a paste
  2. Add hazel nuts and pulse until nuts are broken down into tiny bits
  3. Add sesame seeds and pulse to combine
  4. You may need to add a bit of water here. Mixture should be tacky but not sticky wet. Add water a tiny bit at a time.
  5. Press mixture firmly into a 9×11 baking pan that is lined with parchment paper. Use the back of your spatula or your fingers to even out the top
  6. Place in freezer for about an hour then remove and cut into desired sized bars
  7. Store in fridge, separating layers with parchment paper
  8. Makes 9-12 bars, depending on how big you like them
