    These sound so good. Not a big a fan of raisins…thinking maybe try chopped dates instead. Thanks for another good recipe.

    I made this with dates and it turned out quite delicious. I put a bit too much maple syrup and coconut oil though so it ended up tasting much like coconut and way too sweet.
