Prep Time 5 min Cook Time 20 min Serves 18 small squares     adjust servings

The classic holiday treat made healthier!


  • 1 1/2 cups raw pecans
  • 12 medjool dates (pits removed)
  • 1 cup vegan sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cups chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a food processor , combine the pecans, sea salt and dates until you see the mixture clump together.
  3. Line an 8x8 glass baking dish with parchment paper. Make sure you leave enough paper to stick out the sides.
  4. Gently press the pecan mixture into the glass baking dish. Make sure the bottom of the baking dish is covered with the pecan mixture. Press down well.
  5. Next, add the vegan sweetened condensed milk. Spread it all over the top of the pecan mixture.
  6. Lastly top the bars with the coconut, chips or whatever else you like.
  7. Use a fork to gently press the toppings into the condensed milk.
  8. Bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes.
  9. Wait until the mixture has completely cooled before removing from the baking dish and slicing into squares.
  10. I used a pizza cutter to slice mine.
  11. My bars were slightly gooey, so I found letting them firm up in the fridge helped a lot.


Recipe Notes

Store these bars in the fridge in an airtight container. I suggest placing a sheet or parchment paper in between each bar so they don't stick to each other. They should last a couple weeks in the fridge. You may even be able to freeze them. Enjoy!
