  • ¼ cup butter, vegan, 4 tablespoons room temperature
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup cane sugar
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1+½ cups AP flour, all purpose
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup pitted dates, about 8-10 Deglet Noor dates
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips


  • cast iron skillet
  • 2 mixing bowls
  • food processor


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Gently spray a cast-iron skillet with baking spray. Set aside.
  • Cream together the brown sugar, cane sugar and butter.
  • Next, add the almond milk, maple syrup, tahini, and vanilla. Mix well.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine the AP flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until well combined. Set aside.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix until a batter forms.
  • Grab a food processor and chop your dates into smaller sized pieces. I used about 12 pitted dates.
  • Gently fold the dates and dark chocolate chunks into the batter.
  • Add the batter into the prepared skillet. And press it down using a spatula. You want the batter to be evenly pressed into the skillet.
  • Top with extra dark chocolate pieces to the top before baking.
  • Bake for 22-24 minutes or until cooked all the way through.
  • Serve warm with dairy free ice cream or let it cool and slice it into pieces.
