No-Bake Vegan Date Squares

Raw Date Squares goodgirlgonegreen

As most of you probably already know, I am a huge “date” fan. I add dates to everything from smoothies to raw treats to salad dressings and garnish in my salad. I highly enjoy the sweetness of them without the guilt.

One of my favorite desserts are date squares, but I never make them or buy them because they are usually made with butter and brown sugar. This got me thinking, I should just make a simple no-bake vegan alternative, so I did.

Ingredients

Crust/Crumble

  • 16 dates soaked for 2-4 hours
  • 1 1/2 cups of almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups of oats
  • 1/4-1/2 cup of coconut oil

Date Filling

  • 30 or more soaked for 2-4 hours (if you like your filling sweet add more dates)
  • 1/2-1 cup of water for blending use soaked water.

Instructions

Crust/Crumble

  • Place the almonds and oats in a food processor and combine until it becomes a fine powder.
  • Add the dates, and process.
  • Slowly add the coconut oil to mix everything together. You may need more if the crumble is too dry.
  • Press 3/4 of the mixture in a glass pan, and reserve 1/4 of the crumble to put on top of the date filling.
  • Place the crust in the fridge while you prepare the date filling.

Date Filling

  • Place the dates, and the water in a food processor and blend into a paste.
  • Spread the date filling on the crust evenly.
  • Sprinkle the remaining crumble on top of the date filling.
  • Place the date squares in the fridge for an hour or until firm.
