Why do we call some “pets” and others “dinner?”

This morning I had a craving for a traditional date square, just like mom used to make! Not wanting to break my raw vegan momentum, I put my chef’s hat on and “un-cooked” up this raw version. I ate them for breakfast with a tall glass of almond milk. Enjoy!

Raw Vegan Date Squares

3/4 cups shredded unsweetened organic coconut
3/4 cups almonds
1/4 cup pitted organic dates
dash of salt

In a food processor, combine the coconuts, almonds, and salt until fine. Add the dates until dough forms, then press half of the mixture into a 5×7 rectangular pan.

Date Filling:
- 1 cup pitted organic dates
- 1/4 cup water

Blend dates and water in food processor until smooth and creamy. Add more water if needed. Gently spread the filing onto the crust with a spatula, then add the other half of the crust mixture on top. Press down with your hands or a potato masher to pack the date squares firmly into the pan. Place in the fridge to set for an hour or two before cutting.

    WOAH! I just made these and MAN are they good! They are a little too soft still so I might add some ground flax to the crust next time to help them set… but really, thank you for this recipe! I have always loved date squares but hated that most come with added sugar. These are a clean and absolutely delicious snack that I will be making a lot!
