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!!

Coconut Date Bars

Rating: 4.5 stars 69
The on-the-go, travel-light snack bar. Derived from a famous raw food bar and the ultimate in 'foodie!' This is a great snack for the active lifestyle and impressive to hand out to others. As an outdoor professional I take these in the back country and they need not be refrigerated and give great energy. Cut into bars and enjoy or wrap individually for on the go.
