An energy bar with walnuts, dates, and chocolate, and a bit of fresh ginger for spice.






1 cup walnuts

1 1/4 packed cup of dates

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

1/2-1 tsp freshly grated ginger, peeled


Place all ingredients in a food processor except chocolate chips and blend well. Add in chocolate chips and blend a bit more until a consistency capable of forming and molding is reached.

Mold into whatever shapes you desire.

I made the traditional rectangular shape with a knife and some patience. The balls were formed much easier, as I used a tablespoon measure to scoop up the mixture and press to form a spherical shape. Letting them set in the fridge for a bit helps to make them easier to shape.

Store in a sealed container in the fridge. They should last quite a while.




  1. These look great, dates, chocolate, and ginger, yum! I love the name of your site too!

    I have been buying Nakd bars, 8 for £3 and my hubby said ‘you could make them’. I knew this and was going to so found this. Ginger is holy in our house so cannot wait, I guarantee these will blow nakd into the weeds
