Paleo Date Squares
Serves: Makes 9-16 squares
 
Ingredients
DATE MIXTURE
CRISP (TOP AND BOTTOM LAYERS)
Instructions
  1. Combine all the ingredients for the date mixture in a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until the liquid has fully evaporated and you’re left with a creamy, mushy and smooth, heavenly date mixture. Set aside to cool.
  2. In the bowl of your food processor, combine all the ingredients for the top and bottom layers.
  3. Process on pulse until the mixture is well combined, no more. Refrigerate this crisp mixture for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  5. Press a little more than half the mixture at the bottom of an 8” square baking pan that’s been lined with parchment paper. Place that in the oven and blind bake for 8-10 minutes until the crust starts to turn slightly golden brown.
  6. Remove from the oven, spread the date mixture as evenly as you can over the bottom layer then loosely crumble the rest of the crisp mixture right on top.
  7. Bake in a 350F oven for 22-25 minutes, until the top gets nice and golden.
  8. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
