My Latest Obsession – Date Squares

I hadn’t eaten a date square in years but I ordered one as my mid-ride snack when we biked to Millarville and now all I want to eat are date squares!

I decided to make a few of my own today so that I don’t have to ride my bike to Millarville every time I crave one. Not having a go-to recipe I tried out two versions, a traditional one (left) and a paleo one (right).

Date squares

While both are pretty tasty, the traditional square was definitely my favorite. The oatmeal and brown sugar crumble was more in-line with what I was craving. The paleo bars had a greater filling to crust ratio and a nice coconut flavor (from the coconut flour) but required a lot more ingredients and work.

I head back to work on Wednesday but at least now I have two pans of delicious date squares to help ease me back into school.


  1. That’s it Going to Cobbs Bakery on the east end of Spruce Grove and inspect the goodies…..maybe I can find something which doesn’t trigger heart burn but satisfies the craving……
