Bake to your heart’s content with food photographer and blogger Shelly Westerhausen’s new collection of vegetarian and vegan recipes. Organized by theme (you know you need more vegetarian camping recipes in your life) this is one book every plant-lover’s cookbook library needs. Make these tahini and coconut date bars at home and never buy the packaged stuff again. 

It used to be that I would always grab a handful of store-bought protein bars before heading out on a long trip, but then I kicked that habit and whipped up a batch of homemade bars. These loaded treats are so perfect that you’ll never rely on processed bars again. I like to make them the night before my trip. Just be sure to wrap them in parchment paper to keep the chocolate from rubbing off in your bag or store them in an airtight container.
