The "friends" on facebook said that it was healthy, so I took a minute to click over. There was also a sugar-free version.
So I made it for my friends.
I took the dip with a bunch of sliced apples. It was a hit. Everyone seemed to enjoy it.
Here is the original:
Here is the sugar-free version:
I used slightly less than 1 Tbs vanilla. Because that was all I had. It was plenty vanilla-y.
I omitted the chocolate chips. No chocolate for me.
I used certified gluten-free oats.
I omitted the non-dairy milk. It was runny enough.
For next time, I will actually mix everything without the liquid from soaking the dates, and then add the date liquid as needed. I thought that with all the date liquid it was a little runnier than it needed to be. I was looking for a creamy hummus-like texture.
Despite the slightly more liquid-y than I wanted, it was delicious. Definitely worth doing again.
