These date and coconut bars are pretty amazing. I love pretty much anything with a streusel topping, and didn’t want to make the usual jam or fruit crumble. I had a package of dates in my pantry, brought them back to life by hydrating them in a little warm water, pitted them, and proceeded with the recipe.
Eat them cold (personally, I just like them that way). They’re crumbly, remain moist when packed in a plastic baggie, and are not cloyingly sweet. I gave a few to my neighbor, Jenny, who graciously lets me snip from her herb pots anytime. She said they were really good and her eyes looked surprised when I told her they were vegan (I’m digging this reaction from people). She also said I should sell these to a cafe down the street! Unfortunately, I don’t have enough time on my hands to be baking too much (contrary to what you all may be thinking! Hmmph), so I’ll just give ya the recipe! Cheers!
