Date nut squares

Submitted by: LORETTACAT

Introduction

My grandmother's delicious Christmas recipe, which unbelievably has no added fat. I used walnuts for the nutritional analysis, but you can use pecans or other nuts. You can also substitute dried figs or apricots for the dates. This recipe is also good with white or gluten-free flour.

    Delicious! I subbed a splenda-sugar blend for the .5 C sugar in the recipe & used pecans as the nuts. Very yummy. - 11/10/09

  • I want to make something clear -- someone commented that there is not fat. That is wrong. There is no ADDED fat--there are 2 eggs, and eggs contain fat and cholesterol. It's a great recipe...very good... and an egg or two is not bad for you.... - 1/22/13

  • I made a double recipe in a large 9 x 13 baking dish. At 20 - 30 minutes it was still soupy. I ended up cooking it another 20 or so minutes. Probably a little bit too long but it was a hit. - 11/28/08
