- ¾ cup old fashioned rolled oats

- 2–3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 10 ounces medjool dates
- 1–2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- Place almonds in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add oats, ground flax seed, and cocoa powder. Pulse until well combined.
- Add dates and pulse for 30 seconds, or until mixture is combined and crumbly. Drizzle 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil over mixture and pulse for a few seconds, or until the mixture is sticky and holds together. If still crumbly, add more oil and pulse again.
