What? There still wasn’t a recipe for date squares on this website where everything is sweetened with date puree? Nope. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Yes, you read that right.
So here it is, my very first official date square recipe in the world of Madame Labriski. According to my fact-finding mission, this date square recipe is the healthiest out there. Why use refined sugar or brown sugar to make date squares? Can someone explain? I can assure you, it’s not necessary at all. Actually, I’d even go so far as to say that I think it’s totally absurd.
Here, the date is king.
King of the simple, uncomplicated filling and king because it’s also used to sweeten the crumb mixture in a much healthier way. What’s more, it adds fibre. For an even more distinctive taste, I suggest you make the crumb mixture with caramel date puree. Of course, that’s entirely up to you, it’s just my little foodie tip.
The idea of adding pecans to the recipe was to give them that I-just-can’t-get-enough-of-these taste. Who doesn’t like pecans? Just imagine… date AND pecan squares. The caramel taste of dates combined with the taste of pecans. I guarantee that this recipe caused a sensation in my house. That’s why I’ve called them Irresistible Date Pecan Squares … hahaha! Let me know what you think.
