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!

Recipe By Karen Bell @intuitivekb from intuitivekb.com.



For the crust:
3/4 cups shredded unsweetened organic coconut

3/4 cups almonds

1/4 cup pitted organic dates

dash of salt

Date filling:
– 1 cup pitted organic dates, pitted

– 1/4 cup water



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.


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.
