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.

  1. 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:)

  2. 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. 🙂

  3. These are pretty yummy! Can you let me know how long they can be stored? Can you store them outside the fridge or is it best to store in the fridge

  4. I tried this recipe yesterday, and it is delicious! Great flavor. I did have a problem with them crumbling when I tried to cut one. I’m going to take them out of the pan and add a bit more of some type of binding agent, probably maple syrup or honey, then press back in the pan and refrigerate again. I think this will take care of the problem. Perhaps my dates were dryer and that is why they didn’t stick together. Again, the taste is great, and I will definitely use this recipe again!
