Raw Coconut Date Squares

This isn't really a recipe makeover, more of a recipe inspiration.

I love fantastic raw recipes of Kris @ I Heart Wellness and Angela @ Oh She Glows and wanted to create my own version of a raw date bar.

These were super easy to make, satisfied my sweet tooth and are already gone.  (I think it is time to make another batch :)

I hope you enjoy them!

Raw Coconut Date Squares (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Makes 16 Squares)

20 pitted dates
1/2 cup boiling water
1 tsp vanilla

1 cup oat flour
1/2 cup almonds, ground
2 tbsp vegan margarine (you could also use butter, but they would not be vegan)
2 tbsp maple syrup

1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
pinch of salt
1 tbsp margarine
1 tbsp maple syrup

For the filling
Soak dates and vanilla in boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Drain excess water and mash with a fork.

To make the crust
Combine oat flour and almond flour.  Add margarine and maple syrup.  Stir mixture until it comes together to form a ball.

Press into an 8x8 pan (it will take up about 3/4 of the pan) or form into a flat square on a piece of waxed paper.

For the topping
Mix oats, coconut, salt, margarine and maple syrup to form a crumbly mixture.

To assemble
Spread date mixture evenly on to crust.  Sprinkle on topping and refrigerate for an hour.  Cut into squares. and enjoy!.

What is your favourite raw dessert?
