Today, I’m sharing my easy-to-make Almond & Date Squares. I make these on a regular basis because they’re simple to make, filling, and store for a few days in the refrigerator. As a bonus, these no-bake squares can be made and enjoyed even on the hottest days of summer ☀️.

Even during the summer, I like to keep simple snacks available on a regular basis. It’s an easy way for me to provide snacks, without having to prepare them each day. I hope you’ll enjoy these easy-to-make Almond & Date snack squares too.
