Correctly Formatting Date in the Upfront "Posts" Element

Hi!

I am trying to format the date of a post correctly inside the Upfront Posts element. When the post is displayed in the box that WordPress natively produces, the date of the post follows the correct format that I specified in the WordPress option, even though it is not in the correct place and I can't seem the change that up with Upfront. So, I added a "Post" Upfront element to the page and moved the date where I wanted it, but that date seems not to respect my date formatting setting in WordPress. See the screenshot for the two ways the date is displayed for the same post. The bottom is the date in the WordPress post window. The top is the date in the Upfront Post element, which has some very strange formatting. How do I correctly format the date in the Upfront Post element?

Thanks!
