Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Add some date and nut butter and massage into dry mix. Keep adding butter until all the dry ingredients are coated. Using a course grater or zester, grate the squares of chocolate into the mixture and stir through.
Transfer the mixture to a tray and dehydrate for 8-12 hours. Once the mixture has been dehydrated, break it into small shards and store in airtight container until needed. Serve with nut milk and fresh fruit.
*To make date and nut butter, blend 1 cup of your favorite nuts and add 4 Medjool dates and season with a little vanilla and salt to taste.
