Oh She Glows last week, which requires no sugar!
We were lacking in raw whole almonds and Medjool dates, so we replaced them with sliced almonds and Parnoosh honey dates. I am sure that these would also taste amazing with pecans or other nuts mixed in.
These date squares are great for a healthy snack or - if you're not big on sweet foods, like me - a satisfying dessert.
No Bake Vegan Date Squares
Adapted from Angela at Oh She Glows.
- 1 cup sliced or whole almonds
- 1.5 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 10 honey dates, pitted and chopped
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1.5 cups honey dates, pitted and chopped
- 1/2 cup water
2. Melt the coconut oil, add to the mixture and process until fully blended. If you are using a blender, like we did, you can process partly in the blender, and then remove the mixture and break it up in a bowl with a spatula. Press the mixture into the pan until evenly spread. If you want you can save some of the mixture for later (to sprinkle on top of the date filling).
