Healthy and entirely sinless no-bake vegan date bars without a stitch of flour, butter or sugar! Yes, it's true. This recipe by Leanne Vogel of Healthful Pursuit will blow any baked date bars you've ever had right out of the water - and you're tummy will be happy with you too! It is always recommended to soak your nuts, and Leanne recommends then drying them to crispy, crunchy perfection. If you don't have a dehydrator, and aren't ultra picky about your food processing temperatures, you can easily use the lowest setting on your oven. These date bars are super delicious served with a cold glass of brazil nut or coconut milk. Sink those teeth in and enjoy!
