I never knew I liked dates, until I recently tried a date bar for the first time. That moment marked a point of no return: whenever I visit a place that sells date bars, I simply must have one. Because I also have to be able to afford other things than my rent and daty-goodness I decided to recreate my favorite bar - and it was a huge success! Keep on reading if you love dates just as much as I do, or if you simply want to try out something new. Oh, and these bars are 100% vegan proof as well!
a cup of your favorite nuts (I used almonds + pecans)
Throw all the nuts in a blender and pulverize them. Add the dates and turn it into one big blended mess. Scoop this mess out of the blender (this is an annoying job) and flatten the mixture - turn it into little balls or cut it into bars. Roll the balls through your shredded coconut and if you've decided to make bars simply pour the coconut shreds on the bars.
I secretly ate 4 coconut-date bars whilst typing this article. They turned out to be so, so, soooo delicious! I don't think I'll pay 3 euros for a date bar again, now that I know I can make 20 of them for just a tiny bit more. If you ever decide to recreate this recipe, let me know!
