date walnut bars gluten-free dairy-free recipe

These healthy, higher protein, gluten free Date Walnut Bars are a nice alternative to my more indulgent gluten free Cake Pops.  If you follow me on Facebook, you know I’m obsessed with cake pops.  After I put the words “cake pops” in my status update bar for the umpteenth time, one of my followers said, “yes, I have noticed them!” I think she may have had just a twinge if sarcasm in her response, though who can blame her.

Anyway, back to date bars.  Gluten free date bars.  Truly, these are a nice healthy treat for the new year.  We enjoy them for breakfast with a hot cup of tea, or for an afternoon snack, or for dessert following our dinner.

Date Walnut Bars

  1. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, salt and baking soda
  2. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, oil, agave and vanilla extract
  3. Stir wet ingredients into dry
  4. Fold walnuts and dates into batter
  5. Scoop batter into a greased 8 x 8 inch baking dish
  6. Bake at 350° for 22-30 minutes
  7. Cool and serve

Both my husband and younger son really enjoyed this treat.  Of course, my older son barely noticed them since they do not contain chocolate.
