These Carob Date Bars require just FOUR ingredients and NO baking! Kick your chocolate craving to the curb with these healthy AIP, paleo and vegan treats!



2 cups tightly packed pitted medjool dates

1/4 cup warm water

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1/3 cup carob powder


To soften, soak 2 cups of pitted dates in warm water for about 10 minutes. Then drain.

Add soaked dates and 1/4 cup warm water to food processor. Pulse until dates are finely chopped.

Add coconut flour, melted coconut oil and carob powder to food processor and pulse until a sticky batter forms. Scrape down the sides of the food processor and pulse again, until well-combined.

Transfer to 8″ square baking dish lined with parchment paper and spread to an even layer. For a smoother top, add a sheet of parchment paper on top and smooth with a flat-bottomed object (like a drinking glass).

Transfer to the fridge to firm up for 30-60 minutes. Lift carob date bars out of the baking dish with the parchment paper. Slice into 16 bars and enjoy!


Store in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week, or in the freezer for about a month.
