Can you use regular dates? I wouldn’t recommend it as the medjool dates are sweeter than regular dates and you really need the sweetness from the dates in this recipe since it is the only sweetener.
Peanut Butter Substitute: Swap out peanut butter for your favourite nut butter.
Can you freeze these? Yes these are freezer friendly. Pop them into a freezer friendly container and let them defrost naturally before eating. They will freeze well for 6 weeks – if they last that long!
