  1. I just made these but I might of added to much water. I just put it in the fridge to see if the "dough" would firm up a bit. I used medjool dates and I have to say that when I tasted the dough it was amazing with a spoon. LOL! It is so sweet and yummy. I don't have a food processor but am going to buy one this week. I have a vitamix and although I love it, I think a food processor would be easier to use on some recipes as well as chopping things up.
    1. So glad you liked them! If you add too much water, you can always add a bit more oats to help soak up some of the water. I have both a Vitamix and a Cuisinart and I have to say that the Cuisinart is so much better for recipes like this. The Vitamix is great for smoothies though.
    1. I think it will. I think a reader might have already tried it. You might need to add a tad more water. Please report the results!
      1. I just made these and they are delicious! I made a half batch and added about 1-1/2 T of cocoa powder and a bit of vanilla extract to the 1/4 cup water. I didn't even need to add the chocolate chips! Yum!
        1. Awesome! Glad you liked them! Last time I made them I added 1 T crushed vanilla bean and it made them taste even sweeter! I highly suggest trying it sometime!
  2. I have to say I was hesitant to try these because I've never tried dates before, but gave it a shot since the reviews were good. These are super easy to make and i'm pleasantly surprised how delicious they are. Next time i will add vanilla, that sounds awesome. I plan on making the mint chocolate ones tomorrow! yumm!
    1. Awesome! I was hesitant to make anything with dates until a I saw a recipe for Raw Snickers Bars that used dates as the caramel. I always assumed dates were like raisins. Turns out, they are nothing like raisins. I was hooked the moment I first tried one. If you are ever craving something sweet, try a date filled with almond butter. Yum!
  3. We've made these a couple times & they are delicious! This last time instead of water I added a sliced banana. It turned out amazing!
  4. Is there a substitution you recommend for someone with almond and cashew allergy? Thank you for any suggestions :) Julie
  5. I have almond flour already. Could I use that instead of putting almonds in my blender? What do you think the exchange should be, instead of using 1 Cup of raw almonds use how much almond flour? I am excited to try this recipe especially based on the review feedback. I would appreciate your response because, I want to take a delicious and very healthy treat to a family dinner. Thank you.
  6. I am in the market for a food processor and wondering what you use? I want something to make the yummy looking recipes you post (lara bars, these no bake cookies, etc..). Thanks!!
  7. I had all these ingredients so decided to try these when I saw them pop up on Facebook again. Holy cow! What a treat. I could probably eat the whole pan! I am amazed at how delicious these are with only a few pure ingredients. Ever think of doing a peanut butter chocolate chip one? I will have to Try the Nutella next.
    1. Awesome! So glad you like them! I do have a peanut butter version. I made these into bars though.
  8. Hello, I'm new to your blog- we just bought an ice cream maker so I was googling whole food ice cream recipes and found you. Do you have a post about or thoughts on what to substitute for the almonds? I'm allergic (try to avoid all tree nuts actually). Thank you :)
    1. Sure! You can sub sunflower seeds. Many readers have done that and they say it works great! You will love homemade ice cream! I have several great recipes if you are interested. :)
  9. These are amazing.. I had to use some almonds that I bought that had a tad of honey on them. Not much at all, but that has given these a great twist.. SO yummy..
  10. Hi, I have everything but the medjool dates. The dates I have on hand are pitted Tunisian Deglet Noor. Is there a big difference in dates? Whats so special about the medjool dates?
    1. My mother-in-law is Turkish and she says the medjool dates are the best. They are also larger. You can use another kind of date, but you may need to add a few extra. Please let me know how they turn out with your dates. I would love to be able to tell others.
  11. How much larger are the medjool? Are they like double the size? Trying to estimate how much extra of another kind to use. Also, It won't let me print the recipe. I have an apple computer could that be it? The print button won't work.
    1. I have no idea why the recipe won't print. I have never had an issue with that before. I don't have a mac and am not very familiar with them. The medjool dates are about double the size I think.
  12. Hi! I've been reading your blog for quite some time and see that you use dates a lot. Do the dates have an important role in all the recipes or do you use them simply because you like 'em? I don't really like dates, I find them super sweet and it's not the kind of sweet that I like :(
    1. I often use them as a sweetener. They do usually play an important part in many recipes. You can try subbing out a different dried fruit if you like. Apples or apricots maybe?
      1. I can tell you from experience, that there really isn't any substitute for dates in these types of recipes, particularly the Larabar style bars and balls. I have had some success substituting up to half with another fruit, but eliminating the dates entirely does not have the best results.
          1. Agreed! Dates are a must for me too...especially in my morning oatmeal and Italian biscotti (dig/date/anise and chocolate). Yum!
  13. I just found your site today and I LOVE it! I need to start eating healthier and feeding my family better (we eat way too much processed food and junk) so I am super excited about your blog. I am pinning so many recipes :) Quick question--are rolled oats the same as old fashioned oats? Thanks so much!!
  14. Awww man! I *finally* found Medjool dates but am reading in the comments they're typically found by raisins. The ones I found were in the produce section, refrigerated. Think they'll work for this? If not...any ideas as to what I can use them for? I've been so excited about your recipes containing them that I got two packages!
