Can I use soaked dried pitted dates instead of medjool dates?

You could try that. I would double the amount required.

You could try it. I would double the amount and you may need to presoak them. I hope that helps.

yum….I think I will try this and just use dates to sweeten – I reckon and extra 1/4 cup would work as a guess 🙂 Thanks

I feel that it is for a reason that Australia’s ANZAC day happens to be our anniversary.
We are already looking forward to living in Oz and having this day off every single year to celebrate one more together. <3
Resolute to make these on our first April 25th down under.
You brigthen up my days here in cold stormy Germany (summer!)
Thanks Bianca x

I don’t have maple syrup…. Can I double the honey? Plus, I’m in the middle east where we mainly have a half dried half fresh date. Should I increase the number or soak them? ?

Reply

You can double the amount of dates and soak them. You can also use all honey. I hope you enjoy them. x

The first time I made these, I followed the easy pop it all in the processor recipe – yum! Didn’t wait 15 minutes before eating them though : ) This time I made these with what I had including 4 dried pitted dates, 1/2 TBP coconut oil, golden syrup (1TBP), honey (1TBP) and tried 2 TBP rice malt syrup. Also in the food processor – yum! Thank you for your easy recipes!

i made these and they were Yum, but so crumbly! what did I do wrong?

Reply
Bianca Slade February 12, 2015 - 11:53 am

Hmm, I am not sure, they may have need more blending time? You can double the dates next time and that should help 0 did you use the medjool dates?

These are SO GOOD! I don’t think they taste anything like Anzacs (sorry!) but more like delicious coconut macaroons with a chewy crust. I made them with rice malt syrup instead of honey, but no other changes. Took them along to my Women’s Circle last night and everyone asked for the recipe.
Beautiful recipe, and so easy! Will be making these a lot. Thank you!! Xx
