"This is an adaptation to an all-natural bar that is very popular, naturally yummie, and very versatile. It tastes like you are eating a candy bar but there is NO Sugar Added -- it's nature's candy!! You don't need sugar because it's already sweet! Quick and easy, great for snacking, a grab and go bar!! Kid-friendly too!! Raw and no baking, no cooking required!!"

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Place the dates, peanut butter, coconut, cocoa powder and salt into a food processor. Cover, and blend until smooth, about 4 minutes. The mixture will be very sticky.
  2. Press the mixture into a loaf pan lined with waxed paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Remove the chilled mixture from the pan and slice into 6 bars. Wrap each bar in foil and refrigerate until serving.

Footnotes

  • Editor's Note
  • To be sure your bars are truly raw treats, look for raw cocoa powder at your specialty food store.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

These were delicious! I didn't add the salt and used sweetened coconut because that's all I had on hand. I was a bit leery about making these since I'm not a huge fan of dates but the flavors ...

Really delicious! I used almond butter instead of PB. This is a great option for a high protein sweet treat.

I made these bars, didn't come out sticky, but maybe I mixed it too long. Besides that these bars are awesome, instead of six bars, I cut mine into smaller pieces and gave them to some very pic...

These are excellent tasting bars. I keep some in my frig when I need a good "pick me up". I also take them to work to snack on. Definate keeper recipe.
