These healthy walnut date bars are no bake, paleo and vegan friendly.  They have a soft shortbread crust, crumbly walnut and date filling and a fudgy chocolate topping.






  • 2 oz dark chocolate
  • 1/3 cup drippy almond butter


  1. For the crust: place all crust ingredients in food processor or high powdered blender.  Blend, stopping to scrape the sides as necessary, until dough starts to clump.
  2. Remove crust mixture from food processor and firmly press into a lined 8" x 8" baking pan.
  3. For the filling: place all filling ingredients in food processor and blend until mixture starts to clump.
  4. Remove filling from food processor, scatter over crust and firmly press down with your hands.
  5. For the topping: place dark chocolate in a small sauce pan.  Melt on the stove top, over low heat.  Once fully melted, remove from heat and mix in nut butter.
  6. Pour topping over filling.
  7. Set bars in fridge for at least 30 minutes to set.
  8. Remove bars from baking pan, cut to desired size and eat!
