Raw Date BarsSubmitted by: DEFIANTVEGAN
IntroductionAdapted from Kristen's RAW Recipe, I only swapped out some of the Dates for prunes because I didn't have enough of the Dates to finish the recipe.
They still came out delicious and because of the Prunes this was less in calories. Adapted from Kristen's RAW Recipe, I only swapped out some of the Dates for prunes because I didn't have enough of the Dates to finish the recipe.

15 Medjool Dates
12 Dried Prunes
1C of Raw Cashews
1C of Raw Almonds
2Tbs Raw Coconut oil
Note: or you can use 25-30 Medjool Dates and omit the prunes
Place all crumble ingredients in a food processor, fitted with the "S" Blade, and process until it starts to stick together a bit when pressed gently between two of your fingers.
Date Filling Instructions:
Place the pitted dates and prunes in a bowl with water and soak for about 1 hour. ( I let them soak for several days only because I couldn't find time to make the recipe) If your dates are small then add a few more.
Once the dates are soaked, place them in the food processor, fitted with the "S" Blade, along with 1/4c of the soaked date water.
Process until creamy, if you need more liquid add more to get the right consistency.
Take a little more then half of the crumble mixture and press it firmly into the bottom of your glass baking dish. ( I used a 9X9 Pan)spread the date filling on top. Then, sprinkle the remaining crumble on top of the date filling, and very gently press down.
I didn't use a dehydrator but her recipe called for it, it was fine for me as is - it was softer but firm.
If you use a dehydrator place the date bars in it and dehydrate them at 115 degrees F for about an hour.
Great For breakfast or a treat to satisfy that sweet tooth.
