Date squares are a yummy little treat perfect for family gatherings and parties. I received this recipe from one of my co-workers but modified it to bring down the carbs and pump up the protein and fibre. I replaced all the sugar with stevia, flour for coconut flour and the rolled oats with oat bran cereal which tastes like oatmeal, has more fiber and more nutrients. It also has a lower glycemic load/index than oatmeal, especially instant which tends to be higher GI than steel cut or other oatmeal products.

There are 20 net carbs in one square so I would suggest you go easy on them.

Enjoy!

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
