I made these as soon as I saw this recipe! My kids loved them and even their friends who aren’t WFPB SOS-free loved them too! Definitely a winner and will be making again ❤️

I forgot to ask- have you tried freezing them?

Jill Dalton November 20, 2022 - 2:33 pm

Yes, and they do great

Stacey Jones November 22, 2022 - 7:33 pm

How many bars does this recipe make approximately?

Jill, these look amazing! Perfect for Thanksgiving too. I can’t wait to try them. If my dates seem a little dry, should I soak them first, or does it not matter?

Jill Dalton November 20, 2022 - 2:31 pm

They will be fine without soaking if you have a powerful blender. If you have a normal blender, you could soak them for 10 minutes.

Barbara November 20, 2022 - 11:52 am

Oh wow these look amazing. Do you think they could be made without the nutritional yeast or with something else replacing it?

Jill Dalton November 20, 2022 - 2:30 pm

You can leave it out

Regina Tellez November 22, 2022 - 6:24 pm

What can I substitute for the almond flour? I can’t have any nuts.

Lena November 24, 2022 - 1:47 am

I’m going to sub oat flour since I don’t have almond flour. I’m pretty sure it will be fine =)

Diana January 27, 2023 - 6:37 pm

Just made and they are amazing. Went by recipe exactly. After they cool do they go in refrigerator?

Jill Dalton January 28, 2023 - 6:04 pm

Yes. In an airtight container and they will be good for 2 weeks.

Jen November 26, 2022 - 6:31 pm

Maybe you could use coconut flour as it not a nut, but Id reduce the amount a smidge OR quinoa?

Regina November 27, 2022 - 6:29 pm

I can’t have any fat so I will definitely try quinoa. Thanks!

Sara Kratz November 23, 2022 - 10:23 pm

We love chocolate pecan pie. Could I add cocoa powder and chocolate chips? Would it need more liquid because of the powder? Tx

Jill Dalton November 27, 2022 - 6:28 pm

Sounds delicious. You could add a tablespoon or two to the filling and add the chocolate chips with the pecan topping

Sonia Tipp November 24, 2022 - 12:29 pm

You may want to be more clear in the printed recipe to leave the pecans out for the topping. I didn’t watch the video and accidentally added the pecans to the filling. Oops!

vegielover13gmailcom November 27, 2022 - 7:08 pm

I had to watch the video again because the pecans are listed as part of the filling ingredients. Maybe they can be separated out under a topping heading.

Jen November 26, 2022 - 6:33 pm

I’m making them now amd like the first commenter, I just seen the recipe LOL
It’s so easy, I can’t wait for them to baked!

Kevin November 26, 2022 - 9:15 pm

Hi I made these with out reading the direction 1st.
I added the pecans in the blender with the other ingredients. So it turned out almost like cheese cake 🙂
Tasty although the blender really had to work .
I also remade and I think I liked the cheese cake version better.

Beth Siegelbaum November 27, 2022 - 9:07 am

These were my Thanksgiving dessert and they were fabulous! Everyone loved them. Another WFPBCS winner!

Gina November 29, 2022 - 8:30 am

Made them for Thanksgiving and loved them

Sujata Varma March 18, 2023 - 6:33 pm

Thank you, Jill, for another amazing recipe. How much of mejdool dates can be used instead of the deglets?

Jill Dalton March 18, 2023 - 8:08 pm

Same amount of medjools

These are so seriously good that I’ve been making them and snorkelling them down like a vegan pig! LOL. The first time I made them, I did bake the crust as instructed but found the crust to be too hard. I now skip the step of baking the crust first and instead, assemble the whole thing, bake, and they turn our perfectly!
