No Bake Date & Nut Squares

on February 20, 2013

no bake. vegan. gluten free. healthy. yum.

for the base…

  • 1c of gf oats
  • 1c of almonds
  • 1c of pecans
  • 1/2c of quinoa flakes
  • 5-6 tbsp of maple syrup
  • 2tbsp of coconut oil

process all of the above in a food processor until all combined.

press the goodness into a parchment lined pan (something like an 8×8).

throw one and a half cups of dates – with no pits – into the food processor with a splash (maybe a tablespoon) of water and whiz away.

press the dates mixture onto the top of the oat and nut mixture and place in the fridge for a few hours.

if you can’t wait that long, put them in the freezer for half an hour and enjoy!

you could top them with a few chopped nuts of your choice… sometimes presentation counts.Ā  šŸ˜‰

happy, healthy eating y’all!
