These date squares are absolutely delicious!!! All natural, healthy ingredients... yet they taste like a mini dessert. Perfect combination of sweet and salty... just perfection. These are 30 day reset approved, and an awesome snack to make ahead and leave in the freezer for whenever you desire. This recipe is adapted from Detoxinista, and it is one of my favorites.
Ingredients for this recipe:
-2 cups of soft Medjool dates, pitted
-2 cups nuts (I used one cup macadamia and
one cup cashews)
-1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
-2 tablespoons coconut oil
-1/2 teaspoon sea salt
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place dates and nuts in food processor and blend until a sticky paste starts to form. Then add all other ingredients and blend until everything is mixed in.
Take mixture and place in a square pan lined with parchment paper. Press mixture down until even and smooth in pan.
Refrigerate for at least one to two hours to set. Then lift mixture out of pan with edges of parchement paper and place on cutting board. Cut into small squares and store in fridge or freezer (will last up to one week in fridge, or a few weeks in freezer - I like to keep mine in freezer and just take them out as I need them). Enjoy!!!! :-)
