A note on the ingredients used for the healthy date nut bars
- I used soft, plump Medjool dates for this recipe.
- If you are using the firmer Noor dates variety then, soak dates (equal weight) in hot tap water for about 15 minutes, discard water and use in recipe. You might have to stop, re-distribute ingredients often to get to a creamy consistency.
- You could use mix and match nuts (use the same measure as given) according to your taste or whatever you have on hand.
- Try not to skip the coconut. It adds texture and contributes to the amazing taste when combined with coconut oil.
These vegan date nut salami gets soft at room temperature. So, enjoy straight from the refrigerator.
Don’t like slices? Shape into a bar instead of the log. Chill and cut into small bars.
