Almond-Oat Date bars (Recipe adapted from: Rawcandy.wordpress)

-12 pitted raw medjool  dates

-1/4 cup water

-1 cup almonds + another 1/4 cup

-1 cup raw oat bran

-1/4 cup raw Agave nectar

-1 tablespoon Raw Coconut oil

-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

For this recipe, you will need a small baking dish (2 person size kinda thing), if you don’t have a small baking dish, double the recipe and use a regular size brownie pan, or use this recipe and make the bars in the bottom of a large serving bowl; they will just have round edges! you could also make a few individual ones using ramekins.

in a food processor, grind the Almonds as well as 3/4 cup of the oat bran. Add the agave nectar, the coconut oil and the cinnamon. pulse for about a minute, then scrap the mixture and add to the greased baking dish. Push to flatten the crust into the pan (think; making a cheesecake crust).

Next, to make the date layer, process the dates, and the 1/4 cup water, until forms a paste consistency, spread the date paste onto the crust layer.

For the top layer, process the 1/4 cup oat bran left, with the 1/4 almonds, and a 1/2 teaspoon of water. Spread this mixture onto the date layer, and push a little to compact. Being careful not to push to much, or it will crush the date layer.

Chill for an hour, and enjoy your vegan raw treats!!
