Coconut Pecan Fudge Bars

Sinfully delicious... without the sin! I keep seeing people use medjool dates as a natural, healthy sweetner in desserts, but I could never imagine those desserts tasting so delicious!  This raw, vegan, glutenfree dessert will have you grabbing for more. A true guiltless pleasure! 


 Time: 15 mins 


  • 1 pack medjool dates, pits removed
  • 1 cup chopped pecans - raw  
  • 1 tablespoon salt  
  • 1 cup candied pecans (optional) 
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips  (vegan)
  • 1 cup coconut oil, melted  
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon  
  • 1 cup shredded coconut flakes, unsweetened


  1. In a large food processor, pulse the dates, salt, cinnamon, 1/2 cup of the coconut oil & the chopped raw pecans until a smooth mixture forms.  
  2. In a large Pyrex, spread a thin layer of the coconut flakes.  
  3. Press the date mixture into the Pyrex so it forms a sheet layer of "fudge" over the coconut flakes.  
  4. Mix the chocolate chips & the rest of the coconut oil together until smooth (melt in the microwave for ~15 seconds if needed). 
  5. Pour the chocolate mixture over the date mixture & spread to coat evenly. 
  6. Sprinkle candied pecans over the chocolate if desired. 
  7. Refridgerate for at least 2 hours.  
  8. Cut into squares, serve & enjoy!
