Check out this Amazing Vegan GF Lemon Date Bar Recipe!

I have been making these gluten-free, plant-based treats for years. Kids & adults love them equally. One of my favorite cookbook series is the Moosewood Collective. The recipe is a riff on a lemon date bar from Moosewood Cooks At Home, which I highly recommend. I recently found out about a great source for used vegan cookbooks, Thriftbooks. Many books are $4 and below. Shipping is free after $10 in books. The site is a little dangerous for someone who is obsessed with books like me. 🙂 -Liz
