How to make healthy raw date and nut salami?
- Add dates and coconut oil into a food processor.
- Process until it gets smooth (taste this, yes really! Doesn't it taste so good? I honestly will be be happy licking this with a spoon)
- Scrape off the mixture into a bowl. Stir in nuts with a spoon or hand (does a better job of getting everything well combined).
- Shape into 6-inch log.
- Wrap the log in a parchment paper or plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm ( at least 6 hours or overnight)
- Unwrap, slice with a sharp knife.
- Transfer to a container and store in refrigerator.
Salt and Pepper Cashews <----- Crispy, crunchy, spicy ….ADDICTIVE!
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.

Mmmm! I love this salami for those afternoon sweet cravings! A healthy snack you can feel good about eating (plus looks amazingly delicious)!!!! Happy Monday Maria! 😘
Thank you Kelly, have a fabulous week:)
Kelly, what are the carbs of sugar in the Salami as I have Diabetics in my family?
This would be a great healthy treat.
Hi Judith, We do not have the calories for this recipe as of now. Although this salami is made using healthy nutritious ingredients, we are not sure if it is a healthy treat for someone with diabetics - Maria

This looks divine! I always crave something sweet in the afternoon and I hate to reach for refined sugar because of the inevitable crash afterward. This is the perfect solution! Happy Monday, Maria!
This looks so cool!

What a great idea! They look so yummy and fun. This would be so cute for holiday spreads too. Pretty much anything with dates and nuts is a winner 😉 Can't wait to try this! Thanks!
Thank you Deryn:)
Can this be frozen before it’s sliced?... hope so then I can make several salamis at once.. B
Hi Bex, It might be much harder to slice when frozen. I'd recommend defrosting in the refrigerator for few hours before slicing. Hope it helps:)
Thanks Maria... agreeabout slicing, only wanted to know it could be frozen at all.. thankyou for answering my doubt...
Thanks Maria... agree about slicing, only wanted to know it could be frozen at all.. thankyou for answering my doubt...
Nuts, coconut AND dates? Free of refined sugars? Gluten free? Oh, boy, I'm in 7th heaven! Absolutely perfect snack, and I know several children who'll be very happy with it, too 🙂
Thank you Joyce, it tastes good too 🙂
How do I replace coconut oil ?
Hi Sonika, ghee is a very good substitute. Hope it helps:)
Thanks a lot Maria 🙂
I just made this. I tastes amazing, but it didnt “stick together” so i have really awesome müsli instead of a salami. Any suggestions?
My guess would be that the dates was not enough. Sometimes, dates come in such different sizes, it is very hard to judge unless weighing them. But, this can easily be fixed - Just pulse few dates in a mini food processor, until almost mashed and mix along with the mixture and then shape. (the dates can be soaked in some water for about 30 minutes, for easier mixing). Hope it helps:)
