No Bake Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookie Dough Bars Recipe
By Peanut Palate
🔪Prep Time: 15 mins
⅔ cup Medjool dates pitted
⅓ cup dry rolled oats blended into a powder after measuring
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tbsp tahini
¼ tsp vanilla extract
pinch pink salt
¼ cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips add-in
⅓ cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips optional chocolate topping
1Blend together all ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in a food processor until a dough forms.
2Turn off the machine and mix in the ¼ cup chocolate chips by hand.
3Line a baking tray with parchment paper or a baking sheet. Press down the dough medium-thick into the tray to make 6 bars. If the tray isn't the exact size for the amount of dough made, it can still work – the dough won't spread.
4Optional (extra time required): In a small saucepan over low heat, melt about a third cup of chocolate chips, if desired as topping. Constantly stir the mixture, and pour the melted chocolate in an even layer over the bars once fully melted.
5Refrigerate the bars for an hour.
6Remove from the refrigerator. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 6 even bars. Enjoy!

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
