Secret Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups dates, pitted, chopped
  • 2/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup rolled oat (a generous cup!)
  • 1 1/2 cups self rising flour
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, then grease & line (with parchment) a 7"x11" cake pan.
  2. Combine the dates & orange juice in a saucepan & bring to a boil before turning the heat down to low ~ Cover the saucepan & simmer gently for 5 minutes to soften the dates.
  3. Remove from the heat & mash the date mixture until smooth, then set aside to cool.
  4. In a mixing bowl, beat together the butter & sugar, then stir in the oats & flour to form a crumbly mixture.
  5. Press half of this mixture into the base of the prepared pan to form a smooth base, then use a fork to prick the base all over.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden.
  7. Spread the date paste over the cooked base & sprinkle the remaining crumbly mixture over that as a topping.
  8. Return to the oven & bake for another 30 minutes or until lightly golden.
  9. Remove from the oven, cut into 12 bars & allow to cool in the pan on a wire rack.
  10. Great served either warm or cold.
