This easy, no-bake dessert has just three healthy ingredients: dates, shredded coconut, and chopped walnuts.
To test for softness, squeeze a date between your fingers. If it mashes easily, proceed with the recipe as directed. If it's more fibrous or dry, pulse dates in a food processor until a thick paste forms. Using a piece of parchment paper is helpful when pressing dates into pan. Bars can be stored in an airtight container 2 to 3 days.
