  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180˚C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Spread the almonds on one half of the baking sheet and the walnuts on the other half.
  3. Toast for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly browned and fragrant. Let cool 20 minutes before roughly chopping.
  4. In a food processor or blender, combine the dates, salt, and water, and process until well-combined.
  5. Transfer the date mixture to a large bowl and add the brown rice cereal, oats, blueberries, cinnamon, and salt. Stir until well-combined. Add the chopped nuts and fold to combine.
  6. Transfer the mixture to a parchment-lined baking sheet and spread flat with a spatula.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 30-45 minutes to set.
  8. In a large bowl, combine the chocolate and coconut oil, and microwave for 1½ minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth
  9. Pour ⅔ of the melted chocolate over the bars and spread evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 10 minutes, or until the chocolate is set.
  10. Invert the bars onto a cutting board and remove the parchment paper. Drizzle the remaining chocolate over the top. Return to the freezer for 10 minutes, until the chocolate is set.
