Grain Free Dessert Bars

Michael Pollan’s mantra, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants,” is as close as I get to a diet plan. For one thing, the fads are always changing—who can keep up? And for another thing, there are always too many rules.

While I’m much too easily distracted to be a successful calorie-counter or a no-carb commando,  I feel like certain trends—such as focusing on nutrient-dense foods and limiting refined sweeteners—can carry their weight.

So with that in mind, and with a pantry full of cocoa, nuts, and pitted dates dangerously close to their sell-by dates, I set out to create something delicious.

The resulting bars were dense, fudgy, and brownie-like; full of rich, chocolate flavor from a handful of wholesome, minimally processed ingredients.
