- 2 cups unsalted walnuts
- 14 dates, pitted
- 1/2 cup unsweetened, high-quality cocoa powder, like Hershey's
- 3 teaspoons filtered water
- 2 cups flaked whole-grain cereal
- Combine all ingredients except cereal in blender or food processor and blend until smooth, about 1 minute. Remove mixture and place in medium-sized bowl.
