Vegan nut bars - a healthier option
Who says you can not snack and still eat healthy?
You should definitely try these vegan nut bars. In the shortcrust dough I completely substitute the oil. Take a sugar alternative such as coconut sugar, date sugar or others. Unfortunately, I have to admit, for the nut layer of the vegan Nut bars, I could not find an oil free alternative.
It could not convince me. If you have any idea what could replace the oil, I would be happy to hear from you below in the comments.
