Almost Raw "Almond Joy" Tasting Bars

I got a pound of dried dates from my co-op and had no idea what to do with them. After a small amount of research, I found out that they make good raw food bars. So, I created these tasty, and rich ones that ended up tasting just like almond joy candy bars.. only vegan... and healthy.

1 lb dried dates
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup chopped almonds
2 Tbs Cocoa powder

In a food processor combine all ingredients until everything starts to stick together looks like dough. Press into a bread pan, and chill in the fridge to set.

I love that these are so sweet, but with no added sugar. These are sure to impress your whole family, and are super easy to make!


By the way, we are leaving for vacation to Southern California all this week. Hopefully I'll be able to find some yummy veggie restaurants to showcase on my blog. I know it's been a while since my last post, but now that school is out things should be back to normal!

These sound awesome, I'm going to get some dates ASAP....although, we have a nut allergy here, so I'll have to make "Mounds" bars!!
