Coconut Date Squares; GF/DF, Paleo

This is a no bake recipe for Coconut Date Squares made with just three ingredients. Not only are these easy to make but they are super healthy as well. Perfect for the lunchbox or an afternoon treat! Your kids will love these as too!


Recipe: Yields about 25 squares

  • 1 pound pitted dates
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup unsweetened dried coconut flakes (reserve some for rolling)
  1. Blend the dates, almonds and coconut in a food processor until a paste is formed. Roll heaping tablespoonfuls of the paste in the dried coconut and form into 1 to 2 inch cubes. Top with a slivered almond!

Note: If you find that the mixture is not coming together as you would like and seems too dry, add a small amount (1 to 2 teaspoons) of water and then continue to process in the food processor.
