These were delicious! I didn't add the salt and used sweetened coconut because that's all I had on hand. I was a bit leery about making these since I'm not a huge fan of dates but the flavors that come through most distinctly are the cocoa and peanut butter. Even my 1-year-old enjoyed it!
I made these bars didn't come out sticky but maybe I mixed it too long. Besides that these bars are awesome instead of six bars I cut mine into smaller pieces and gave them to some very picky 6 and 7 year old girls and they devoured them without a problem. Thank you very much for this recipes. This is a new school and home favorite and the bonus is there is no sugar and kids think they are eating chocolate!
Made according to the recipe and it is very good. Place in center of large piece of parchment, fold up the sides and chill, then cut into squares. Also made a batch with dried Kalamata figs, almond butter, coconut, roasted almonds and 2 scoops vanilla protein powder. Excellent! One tip: spritz your processor and blade with non-stick spray for easy clean-up.
I've made this recipe twice using Jif Creamy PB. both times omitting the coconut & salt. The first time I used Sunsweet Whole Pitted Dates. Even though I didn't over mix the mixture came out dry. I added a little extra PB & that seemed to help. The bars turned out great & were consumed quickly. So today I made the second batch using Sunsweet Chopped Dates. These dates were obviously drier straight from the package (in retrospect probably better suited for wetter mixtures like cookie or muffin batter). I had to compensate with even more PB which threw the overall flavor balance off. Other than using fresh dates (not easy to find where I live I'd love ideas for how to improve the moistness when using packaged dates.
I used whole pitted dates almonds instead of coconut. Tried to coat with coconut but not sticky enough. Used a commercial food processor. Tried adding more Adams peanut butter to no avail. Tasty but really messy to make and poor presentation.
