vibrant pistachio-lime crunch bars

I am so excited about this next Vegan Valentines recipe, I want you all to be my Valentine. I want everyone to taste how vibrant these flavors are. Really, the flavors just pop!

I am on my … fourth? fifth? batch of these, and am not stopping any time soon – we both love these bars. I dip them into smoothies, I have them with breakfast, they are a perfect afternoon snack. This is a simple recipe, using a very short list of ingredients.

When they’re bite size, they are perfect for grabbing a couple on my way to the gym or before a run. Just a little healthy truffle:

if you like crunch, you will LOVE this cereal – it stays crunchy the whole time. I LOVE that ;)

you know what is SO funny, I was thinking the same thing!! (well, some kind of heat – I was actually thinking a dried pepper…) I guess I should not be surprised – we share the same tastes ;)

The recipe just says 10 Medjool dates…do you have more of a volume that should be equivalent ? I have seen them in the bulk section at the store buy I do not need them. I do not want to go buy dates I don’t need when I have several pounds at home already of other dates. Thanks.

22 Kristina Sloggett February 14, 2013 at 8:53 am

hi Elizabeth, this recipe is approximately 3/4 cup dates, as Medjools are generally larger than other dates. Enjoy!
