Place the Brazil nuts in a food processor and chop finely.  Add the cacao powder, coconut, ginger, vanilla and salt and process again to combine.  Separate the dates and add to the food processor along with the coconut oil.  Pulse to gently begin to combine the dates.  After a few pulses, run the food processor until all ingredients are well combined and a sticky dough has formed.  Scrape into an 8″ baking pan and press the dough in firmly.
