Notes

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Raw Date Squares are suitable to freeze. Layer between sheets of baking paper and seal in an air tight container.  Freeze for up to two months.  Defrost in the fridge overnight before consuming.
  • The mixed nuts can be substituted with almond meal.
  • Raw Date Squares are best eaten cold from the fridge.  If they are allowed to stand at room temperature for more than 20 minutes they start to soften.
