I am a dessert person. When I saw this recipe on The Rawtarian’s site, I knew I had to do it. This simple but delicious recipe is amazing! It’s sweet and chewy, and the best – no sugar, flour, or dairy. I edited the original recipe a little (of course I did), but the result was still amazing.

This is not the most nutritious recipe ever, but it’s still very healthy and it makes a wonderful sugar fix that you can carry around as a snack or have it as a dessert.

They taste like lemon pie, and I devoured the whole recipe in only a few days. This is probably my new favorite dessert.


Lemon Bars


  • 1 cup almonds
  • cups dates
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 lemon zest and juice

  • Soak the dates in warm water for a few minutes. Especially in this recipe, soaking the dates will make everything much easier.
  • Zest and juice the lemon.
  • Process the almonds to a fine powder.
  • Place them in a bowl and set it aside.
  • Process all other ingredients in the food processor until there are no large pieces of dates.
  • Add the ground almonds and pulse until incorporated.
  • Transfer to a small baking sheet and place it in the refrigerator or the freezer to set.
  • Once it's set, cut it and enjoy!
