Date Coconut Blondies are outrageously good! No kidding. These delicious cookies are filled with dates and coconut. I know dates and coconut don’t float everyone’s boat. But for those of you who enjoy these flavors and textures, Date Coconut Blondies absolutely rock!

I made these delicious jewels for the last couple of weeks of John’s Day Neuro program back in November. I tried to send out goodies weekly as appreciation for all their hard work. It’s not easy dealing with stroke patients. Even though John was coming along excellently, there are other patients with traumatic brain injuries (not always from stroke) that need extra care. It’s a hard job. So I sent out these cookies in the middle of November for everyone to enjoy.

Date Coconut Blondies are certainly good for the holidays, but these tasty treats can be made up year round. I recommend them any time you need a dessert for a potluck, tailgating party or snacks for soccer practice or games. Don’t be surprised if even your kids love these goodies. Yep. They’re that good. 🙂

    Have you ever made the Date Coconut Blondie recipe as described above but substituting Gluten Free Flour.
    If so were you pleased with the results?
    Thank you,
    Linda

      Hi, Linda. I haven’t used gluten free flour yet. But I’ve never had any problem substituting a good gluten free flour in any recipe. I recommend cup4Cup brand or any good GF flour.
