Like the energy squares at The Merc
- 2 c almonds
- 1 c dark chocolate chips
- 3 c prunes, packed
- 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
In a food processor, grind almonds into desired consistency (anything from a fine powder to slightly chunky). Add in chocolate chips and pulse so that chocolate chips are well chopped. Pour into a bowl and set aside.
Place prunes in the food processor. Process until a rough paste forms.
Add the almond mixture back to the food processor. Add in peanut butter. Process until everything is combined, scraping down the sides as needed.
Grease the bottom of a 9x13" pan. Evenly press the mixture down into the pan. Note: I used a cup to roll it out.
Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours before cutting. Cut into 2x2" squares. Keep refrigerated to store.
