"One of my favorite treats from my book, this recipe has two layers of vanilla crumble dough with a delicious date mixture stuffed between. Sweet, but not too sweet. I’m in love, what can I say?"

  • Step 1/7

    • 55½ g pitted dates
    • bowl

    Add the dates to a medium bowl, cover with boiling water, and allow to soak for 15 min. Then drain and set aside.

  • Step 2/7

    • ½ tbsp flaxseeds (ground)
    • 27¾ ml maple syrup
    • 27¾ ml unsweetened plant-based milk
    • ½ tsp vanilla extract
    • 30 g margarine
    • bowl (large)
    • cooking spoon

    In a large bowl, combine the fl ax seeds, maple syrup, nondairy milk, and vanilla. Add in the melted butter and stir well.

  • Step 3/7

    • 60 g flour
    • 30 g rolled oats
    • ¼ tsp baking powder
    • ¼ tsp salt

    Now add the fl our, oats, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Refrigerate the dough while you prepare the date filling.

  • Step 4/7

    • 17¾ ml maple syrup
    • ¼ pinch salt
    • 13⅓ ml unsweetened plant-based milk
    • blender

    Add the dates, maple syrup, salt, and milk to a food processor. Blend until you’ve got a smooth, yet sticky, paste. A few chunks in the paste are completely fine.

  • Step 5/7

    • oven
    • baking pan (8x8 in.)
    • parchment paper

    Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line an 8x8-inch (20x20-cm) baking pan with wet parchment paper. Make sure you leave parchment paper hanging over the sides of the pan to make it easier to lift out later.

  • Step 6/7

    • rubber spatula

    Press a little over half the oat batter evenly into the baking pan. Add the date fi lling on top and use a spatula to smooth it into an even layer. Using your hands, crumble the remaining batter over top.

  • Step 7/7

    • knife

    Bake for 35 – 38 min., or until golden brown. Let cool for at least 30 min. Lift out of the baking dish, cut into nine equal squares, and serve.

  • Enjoy your meal!
