I hadn’t eaten a date square in years but I ordered one as my mid-ride snack when we biked to Millarville and now all I want to eat are date squares!
I decided to make a few of my own today so that I don’t have to ride my bike to Millarville every time I crave one. Not having a go-to recipe I tried out two versions, a traditional one (left) and a paleo one (right).
While both are pretty tasty, the traditional square was definitely my favorite. The oatmeal and brown sugar crumble was more in-line with what I was craving. The paleo bars had a greater filling to crust ratio and a nice coconut flavor (from the coconut flour) but required a lot more ingredients and work.
I head back to work on Wednesday but at least now I have two pans of delicious date squares to help ease me back into school.
