I followed Nihacc’s link to this easy recipe and played around with it a little bit, changing out some of the ingredients, and adding some here and there. My take on it is below, but I encourage you to check out Nihacc’s mouthwatering breakfast blog (imagine: something different each morning!) as well as the blog she cites (The Sunny Raw Kitchen).

Date-Cherry-Ginger-Orange-Coconut Bars [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup dates, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried tart cherries
  • 1/4 cup crystallized ginger
  • 1 cup dried, unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 2 tbsp. fresh orange juice
  • 1 tbsp. cacao nibs
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds

Preparation

  1. Line a 9″ x 9″ pan with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, finely grind the almonds.  Add the dates, cherries and ginger and process a few times just to break everything down.  Add the remaining ingredients and process until everything is in small bits.  If the mixture is not coming together, add a tablespoon or two of water.
  3. Dump the mixture into the prepared pan and gently spread and pat it out until it reaches all sides and is fairly even.  Place in the refrigerator for a few hours before slicing.  I wrap mine in parchment paper and store in the refrigerator.

I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.
