Expert Tips

  • Substitute 1/2 cup chopped pitted dried figs for the dates.
  • Be sure to use fresh, soft dates for this recipe. If not available, soak dates in 2 tablespoons boiling water 15 minutes to rehydrate.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
