Looking for good recipes calling for fresh dates.....

My husband brought home a flat of dates. They are wonderful plain, but I would like some new recipes as well.

  • 20 dates = a cup of sugar for baking
    Dates are very yummy in smoothies
    Blend with cocoa for a healthy treat

    Make a raw pie:
    Grind 1.5 cups dates and 1.5 cups shredded coconut in food processor. Press into a pie pan.

    chocolate filling:
    - 4 ripe avocados
    - 1 cup agave
    - 1.5 cups raw cocoa powder
    - 1 cup coconut oil
    blend together until smooth. put in crust and chill overnight.

    coconut filling:
    - meat from 3 young coconuts
    - 1.5 cups shredded coconut
    - 1 cup agave
    - 1 cup coconut oil
    blend together (will be a little chunky). put in crust and chill overnight.

    Larabar clone:

    Lay two pieces of wax paper (or plastic wrap) on counter. Place fruit in food processor and pulse until it has a paste-like texture. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add nuts to food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add nuts to bowl with the fruit. Add all other ingredients.

  • Use fingers to knead into a paste.

    Divide mixture in half. Place each half on wax paper or plastic wrap. Wrap paper around mixture and form into a bar shape, wrapping tightly. Store in the refrigerator

    Here are a few different recipes I found:

    Very Cherry: 1/4 c. dates, 1/4 c. dried cherries or cranberries, 1/3 c. whole pecans, almonds, or walnuts, 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
    Cashew Cookie Dough: 1/3 c. dates, 1/2 c. raw cashews
    Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough: 1/3 c. dates, 1/2 c. raw cashews, 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, pinch of cinnamon, 1/2 oz. finely chopped semisweet chocolate
    Blueberry Bliss: 1/4 c. dried blueberries, 1/4 c. dates, 1/3 c. almonds, 1/2 tsp. finely grated lemon zest, 1 drop almond extract

    Note: Make sure to use roughly chopped or whole dates, not pre-chopped for these recipes
