Every single time I go to the store, I break down and eat a Lara bar. Now, this would be ok, if I could eat nuts but my silly self cannot eat nuts (well ones that are not soaked and dehydrated) so I break out with a rash on my hands horribly and Mr. Bejelly gives me THE LOOK. I hate getting the look and seriously, I don’ t know why I keep punishing myself so I had a tough conversation with myself and said “Girl, stop eating nuts and just make some Nut-free Chocolate Date Bars.”
I wish I would have done this sooner because this recipe is crazy easy, requires no baking and is the perfect sweetness. I ate way too many and was happy we had company over who demolished the rest.

- 1 cup of raw, unsalted sunflower seeds
