No Bake Nut-Free Chocolate Date Bars

Sharing is caring!

Nut-free Chocolate Date Bars

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.

    I am so with you on the nuts, they have to be soaked and dehydrated! And so many pre-packeaged bars have nuts! But these look awesome:)

    You can’t even try to hide it when your hands give it away like that! Good idea to make your own that won’t cause a reaction.

    I think these would be a great lunchbox treat, although I would have to snag a few for myself.

    Sounds good, I am looking for homemade bar recipes because it it too expensive to buy them at the store!

    We’ve made a “raw brownie” recipe before that is similar to this – but this looks like it has a bit more texture with the seeds. I think we will have to try these next time!

    Is the recipe missing something? I do not see coconut listed.

      Summer, thanks so much for your comment! It is missing coconut shreds. I updated the recipe 🙂

    These look delicious and I can’t wait to try them! Are you getting 10 bars out of a 9×13 pan? I’m thinking these might be perfect for an outing I have coming up. 🙂

      I got way more than that Rachel. My pan was 8 x 12 and I cut them into 2 x3 pieces. I got roughly 20 bars.
