Cheesecake bars without cheese. Is it even possible. OMG paleo did it. I re-created it in my own kitchen. It was creamy and nutty. A small slice is a good protein hit I am sure.
I would have never thought that dates could create a caramel-look and taste texture. I am usually not a fan of caramel anyway, but this is the magic touch to the slice.
A few disasters did happen. My base and 2nd layer merged and became one big layer. Oh well, That's not the biggest problem. I changed the recipe to reflect that. The date-icing saves the day.
Is this really low in sugar? Not really. The dates would probably have increase the sugar content a few folds. A good treat? You bet. One word of caution, remember to serve directly from the freezer or fridge as it does soften too easy... I learned the hard way and had to spoon it from the plate!
