These cookies are a delicious and hearty alternative to doughnuts or pastries. Also great to pack in lunches and on trips. Try one with your morning coffee or tea. For a slightly richer treat, use buttermilk in place of the water. Substitute dates for the raisins, if you prefer.

Low-Sugar Date Brownies

Using dates in place of sugar makes for a very fudgey and chocolaty-tasting brownie with no added sugar. These brownies are slightly cakey; if you prefer a denser brownie, use only 1 egg instead of 2.

Inspiration and Ideas

Coconut Date Bars
Rating: Unrated
The on-the-go, travel-light snack bar. Derived from a famous raw food bar and the ultimate in 'foodie!' This is a great snack for the active lifestyle and impressive to hand out to others. As an outdoor professional I take these in the back country and they need not be refrigerated and give great energy. Cut into bars and enjoy or wrap individually for on the go.
