Healthy Cooking Tips:

If you don't have a food processor, this recipe may be done by hand, which, of course, will take longer (but well worth it). Cut dates and Prunes in quarters. Toss with 1 TBS of the cocoa and chop the mixture until minced. Chopping with the cocoa keeps the mixture from sticking together. Place the chopped mixture in a mixing bowl and combine with remaining cocoa, almond butter and maple syrup. Knead the mixture on your cutting board until well combined. This version will be chunkier than those prepared in the food processor. Continue with the recipe described in step 3.
