Vegan Gluten-Free Coconut-Date Bars

Do you want or need a relaxing moment?  Try this, grab your favorite book, a cup of hot tea, and a slice of these Coconut-Date Bars.  Then, settle in by a roaring fire, a warm bed, or by a window so you can watch the birds or even the snow falling.


6 T organic shredded coconut 
16 organic fresh pitted dates
1/2 organic walnuts, finely chopped 
1/2 cup 85% organic dark chocolate, shaved


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Place whole walnuts on a baking sheet lined with unbleached parchment paper.   Roast walnuts for 10-12 minutes; remove from oven and place into a food processor.  Grind until finely chopped.

While the walnuts are roasting, line a 9"x9" square baking pan with unbleached parchment paper.

Sprinkle 3 T of the coconut on the bottom of the lined pan.

Press the pitted dates on top of the coconut, this will be a little messy. 

 Sprinkle the shaved chocolate on top followed by the warm walnuts.

 The warm walnuts will melt the chocolate.  Sprinkle remaining 3 T of coconut on top of the walnuts.

Store in a covered container.
