1ozdark chocolatechopped (we use Trader Joe's brand to make these vegan friendly!)
Preheat oven to 350.
Place the dates, water, maple syrup, chia seeds, vanilla, and salt into the bowl of your food processor. Let it all soak for 5 minutes, then process until fairly smooth (it’s OK to have some pieces of dates remaining, but you don’t want any big chunks).
Toast oats over medium heat in a heavy bottomed skillet until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Stir frequently to ensure even toasting and prevent them from burning.
In a medium mixing bowl, add the oats, goji berries, dark chocolate and the date mixture. Mix well with a spoon until all the oats are completely covered in the date mixture.
Line a 8.5" x 4.5" loaf pan with parchment paper. Spread the mixture evenly into the pan, then press down on it to really compact it (we used the bottom of a glass for this).
Bake for 20 minutes. Cool completely, then remove from the pan and cut into 6 bars.
To make these portable, wrap them in parchment paper, plastic wrap, or small ziplocks, then throw them in your pack and go!
