    Heeey! My friend is gluten intolerant and cannot have rice flour either, so I made this with almond meal instead of the flour and it turned out great! Even a guy who only eats 'normal' food liked it! Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

    I made this last night. Absolutely delicious! I took invisiblechef's advice and ran it through the blender cause I was pressed for time. Next time I'll try boiling. I think the texture of the chopped up dates and raisins will be better. Although, my daughter who hates raisins really enjoyed it this way.

    Thank you so much for this - I make it with buckwheat and rice flour because I can't eat wheat (or sugar or dairy!), and it's been a lifesaver - it tastes sweet but doesn't leave you feeling rubbish!!

    I have a very similar recipe, but would love to add the dates for a new updated version! What I do instead of mixing all the 'sweeteners' in a saucepan is just blend them in a blender, that way they stay 'raw'... well besides the cooking part. LOL
    Have a nice day!

    PS Have this saved and will let you know when we make it. Sounds yum.
