Coconut Date Bars

Coconut Date Bars

Lacy Wilson 2

"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."

These were very easy to make and they taste delicious. They are also very versatile so you won't get tired of the same flavor over and over again. They remind me of Larabars. I will use their fl...

I made 4 double patches today, different combos of extras, they are all great! You do need to pulse and/or run the food processor at least 2 or more minutes to get to the ball state. I used a ...

Very tasty. Without a photo by lacy, the recipe submitter, and limited guidance (“pulse until mixture is thick and sticks together”), it’s hard to know how fine or coarse a texture she intended ...

I make a similar recipe using choc. chips instead of coconut to give it a little sweetness - the end result tastes just like cookie dough! Delicious and healthy snack when you`re on the run.

These are GREAT! So addictive, and a great substitute for expensive energy bars. I didn't add the coconut oil, but I did throw a few chocolate chips in, and they turned out wonderfully! I used a...

I added dried cranberries, flax and chia, walnuts and sunflower kernels. Kind of threw together what I had. My husband needed them for a school survival trip. His classmates raved!

I made these twice and they are very crumbly. They don't look as pictured. I tried microwaving the dates, and adding more dates to soften the bars. They taste delicious, but I'm using it as a...

I tried these on a whim when a friend gave me some dates. I only had 6 dates, but I followed the recipe otherwise. By the color of the bars in the picture, I think the bars would have held toget...

My dates were dry so I heated them up with a bit of water in a pot on the stove before blending them in. Nutritious and delicious!
