Instructions for Date Paste Coating

For the coating you need to make date paste which is super simple. All you need is dates and water and a food processor.

  1. Remove seeds from Medjool dates. (Medjool dates are extra soft and super sweet!).
  2. Soak in water enough to cover them for 30 minutes up to 2 hours until extra soft.
  3. Drain but save the water.
  4. Place in food processor and blend until smooth, scraping sides of container as needed.
  5. You want this paste to be very thick but spreadable. You can add a tiny bit of the drained off date water but be careful to not add too much. I didn’t need to add any to mine.
