Mmmmmmmmm! I got halfway through making these and realised I was out of dates so used a cup of peeled & chopped Granny Smith apples instead. I also used fresh sweet potatoes, peeled & steamed in the microwave (2 cups = 17oz can). Just sweet enough to satisfy those mid-afternoon munchies and lots of fun getting people to guess the "mystery ingredient" LOL. This is definitely a keeper. Thanks Sherrybeth.
