Oatmeal Date Bars RELOAD! 😉
I upDATED 🤭 this post because I found a couple things I had to correct and/or change. 🌴 ⤵️
Of course I took a corner piece!😉
OATMEAL DATE BARS
1 1/2 c. oatmeal
1 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. butter, melted
Mix and spread 2/3 of mixture in a 9×13″ (or 8×8 inch if you want thicker/deeper bars) baking pan. Pat down.
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. water
2 c. dates, chopped
I put above ingredients in saucepan to heat sugar, water and dates together until it thickens, then pour into food processor or blender. It’s HOT. blended pretty good, lumps are fine.
Spread over oatmeal mixture. Spread remaining oatmeal mixture over dates; I used my hand to evenly distribute, then lightly pat to even it out. Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) for 30 minutes. Cut while warm.
I “thought” I got dates more even; maybe it changes as it cooks?
