Having coeliac disease means that I usually can't eat what everyone else is eating... and usually that doesn't bother me at all...

But sometimes I get to church on a Sunday morning and see the 8am ladies and gents with their epic morning tea spread and I kinda sorta wish I could devour their old fashioned treats... 

And then I find myself dreaming of making said treats and decide that I really need to make those dreams a reality.

This Date Slice recipe was one of those treats.

You see, the lure of those golden, buttery looking cookie bars was too much to resist - so I decided I needed to make my own version.

And this gluten free version? It quickly became a family favourite.

prep time: 5 Mcook time: 15 Mtotal time: 20 M

ingredients:

  • 1 cup (175g) dates, chopped*
  • 1 1/3 cup (160g) gluten free plain flour 
  • 1/3 cup (65g) brown sugar

How to cook Easy Gluten Free Date Slice Recipe (Vegan Options)

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/355F. 
  2. Line an 8x8" baking tin with baking paper and set aside. 
  3. Sift your flour and baking powder into a medium mixing bowl and set aside. Add your dates and brown sugar. 
  4. In a small saucepan, heat your butter and golden syrup over a medium high heat until melted. 
  5. Once your butter mixture is melted, pour it over your butter mixture and stir to combine. 
  6. Your mixture will look quite crumbly, but it should press together. 
  7. Pour your mixture into your prepared tin and flatten out with a spoon or your fingertips. 
  8. Press your slice mixture out, forming an even layer. 
  9. Bake your slice for 15 minutes or until golden. 
  10. Leave to cool before slicing and serving. 
  11. This slice will keep for ~a week in an airtight container at room temperature.

NOTES:

*I used dried dates for these bars instead of fresh medjool dates as the dried dates give them more of a chewy texture, however, both work fine!
**For a vegan option, use coconut oil instead of butter.
