Notes

  • date sugar is just dehydrated dates that have been blended down into a powdery form resembling sugar. I buy mine at whole foods, but you can buy it online here. I haven’t tried this recipe with a liquid sweetener such as agave (it might work as well but I can’t guarantee results). You can also use any other natural sugar such as brown cane sugar. 
  • I make my own oat flour by processing one cup of rolled oats in the food processor until I have a really fine flour. 
  • On day one the pudding will be soft and crumbly but after sitting in the fridge for a few hours or overnight, it will harden and is better served as squares/bars.
