These easy, 4-ingredient peanut butter and raw cacao vegan snack bars are a delightful plant-based treat that make for an amazing addition to your breakfast or a healthy on-the-go snack! My raw vegan snack bars are made with dates so they are super creamy, and sweet as can be! Dates are an amazing source of fiber that help everything move as freely and smoothly through your gorgeous bod as it should.
