Makes 8 bars

1 cup soft medjool dates, pitted

1/4 cup Ceres Organics Chia Seeds

1/4 tsp Gatty Vanilla Extract

1/4 tsp almond extract

1/4 cup Planet Organic Cocoa Powder

¾ 
cup Ceres Organics Whole Almonds, roughly chopped

1 tbsp Ceres Organics LSA

1 Puree dates and chia seeds in a food processor until a thick paste forms. If dates are slightly dry, add a few drops of water in order to pull the mixture together. Add the vanilla and almond extracts, then the cocoa powder. Pulse until all ingredients are combined. Add the chopped almonds and pulse until nuts are finely chopped and well distributed.

2 Spread a sheet of wax paper on a flat surface and dust with LSA. Place chia-almond mixture on top of LSA and cover with another sheet of wax paper. Using a rolling pin, roll out mixture to about a 1cm-thick rectangle. Dust top with LSA. 

3 Wrap firmly and chill for an hour. Unwrap block, and cut into bars. Dust edges and sides with more LSA, to prevent sticking.  Re-wrap each bar in waxed paper.
