Date Squares - Wheat-free
These date squares are wheat-free and full of only healthy ingredients. Most date squares are just way too sweet in my opinion. So when I developed this recipe; my own version is less sweet and tastes even better.
- 1 Apple large
- 2 cups Dates
- 1 cup Water
- 1/2 Lemon
- 1/2 cup Vegetable fat or coconut oil
- 1/3 cup Rice syrup or honey
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 3/4 cup Rolled oats
- 1/4 cup Potato flour
- 3/4 cup Brown rice flour
Chop the dates and the apples finely.
Put the water and the apples into a saucepan
Simmer the apples in water till soft.
Juice half a lemon.
Add the dates to the pot and simmer till soft.
Mash the mixture well.
Now mix in the lemon juice and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 400º F.
In a separate bowl, mix in the coconut oil or vegetable fat, rice syrup, and salt.
Next, add the potato flour and brown rice flour, mix it in well.
Then add the oats and mix well.
Pat 2/3 of the mixture into an 8 X 8 pan. Make sure it is firmly patted down.
Spread the date mixture evenly on top of the oat mixture.
Then sprinkle the other 1/3 of the oat mixture on top of the dates.
Lightly press down.
Bake the squares in the preheated oven at 400º F. for 25 to 35 minutes.
When they are done, let the wheat-free date squares cool before cutting them and eating them with tea.
