Chocolate Coconut "Larabars"

Chocolate Coconut "Larabars"
Put these items in a food processor and mix until they form a ball.  Set the ball aside in a bowl.

1 cup pitted dates, chopped
1 cup dried fruit (figs, raisins, etc.)*
1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
pinch salt

Now put these items in the food processor and mix until the consistency is like coarse flour.  Add the ball back in by pinching pieces of it off and adding them into the food processor bowl.  Then add the coconut oil and water by drizzling over the bowl evenly.  Process until the dough becomes a ball again, or close to it.

1 1/3 cups soaked and dehydrated nuts (almonds, walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, etc.)**
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cocoa powder
2 tablespoons coconut oil (to desired consistency)
2 tablespoons filtered water (to desired consistency)

Press into a 8x8 glass pan, then cut into bars and serve immediately.  You can also store them in an airtight container at room temperature.

*I used dried figs
