Chocolate Chia Walnut Bars

A raw, easy, yummy vegan dessert; see Happy Healthy Librarian's Chocolate Chia Walnut Bars. 

1 1/2 cups pitted Medjool dates (be sure all pits are gone!)
1/3 cup raw usweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup whole chia seeds
3/4 tsp vanilla extract, optional
1 cup raw walnut pieces
Oat flour for dusting


1.  Place dates in bowl of food processor; puree until thick paste forms.  If the dates are on the dry side, you may need to add small amounts of warm water to moisten them up.
2.  Add cocoa powder, chia seeds, and vanilla.  Pulse until all ingredients are combined.
3. Add walnuts; pulse until nuts are finely chopped and well distributed through date mixture.
4. Spread large sheet of wax paper on work surface, and dust with oat flour.
5.  Transfer date mixture to wax paper, and press mixture into 1/2 inch thick rectangle.  Wrap tightly with the waxed paper, and then with foil.  Chill overnight.
6.  Unwrap block, and cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator--they keep for days!
