Coconut Walnut Date Squares have heart-healthy oats, they’re naturally sweetened, high in fiber, rich in nutrients and full of flavor! These delicious squares also happen to be vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free.


I just love the flavor combination of oats, coconut, walnuts, and dates. These healthy ingredients make for a great tasting snack or dessert. As a matter of fact, they make a great breakfast bar, because they’re naturally sweet and don’t have added sugars.


They’re perfect for holiday dessert platters too. No one will know they’re healthy because they’re so good!
