Blend up the almond flour, cacao powder and date paste until smooth.
Spoon the mixture into molds.
Freeze for two hours, then remove from molds and insert sticks. Lay the bars on a parchment-paper lined cookie sheet and return to the freezer for a longer freeze. At least four hours or overnight.
Coat them in chocolate
Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a shallow bowl in the microwave for 60 seconds.
Stir until all chips are melted, and then lower each bar into the chocolate, using a spoon to make sure all sides are covered.
Return the bars to the parchment paper, and sprinkle with your choice - salt flakes, festive stars or how about a little gold dust.
