This version uses NO ADDED SUGAR. All of the sweetener comes from my favorite natural sweetener, Medjool dates. I love love love using dates for homemade Larabars.
Honestly couldn’t tell the difference between this version and the original version. Just as gooey and amazing.

Blend the dates with the in a high quality food processor or blender until very smooth. Add the remaining ingredients (except the chips) and blend very well in the food processor (NOT a blender) until completely smooth. Stir in chips and transfer to the prepared pan.
Bake 45-50 minutes until firm (start checking at 35 minutes–everyone’s ovens varies!). Remove from oven and let it cool 20 minutes before removing from the pan.
