Date and Banana Squares

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Bokenpop aka Madele

This is a delicious and unusual dessert using two of my favourite ingredients! The original recipe calls for 250ml sugar but I find that is too sweet for my tastes. Feel free to change the quantity back if you prefer something sweeter.
