These bars were a disappointment. They were too dry and tasted mostly like flavorless crust. I dribbled extra honey on the top after tasting and they were more palatable. Made for ZWT #6 - 2010.

Oops- shouldn't have messed with the recipe. I ground the oats in food processor, but the result was a crust much too dry. Good flavor; I might try again. I could only eat these warm with milk.

I liked these, but they weren't quite what I was expecting. I made them for a Rosh Hashanah dessert and they didn't seem quite rich enough. However, they were great for breakfast and snacks the next day. I would say they remind me of a good chewy granola bar.<br/><br/>I doubled the recipe and that worked fine. The only other change was that I "cooked" the dates and water in the microwave instead of on the stove.

These are definitely different! I found them a bit challenging because the ratios of crust to filling wasn't quite enough for my 8x8-inch pan. The layers were so thin that I believe it led to them overbaking a bit even though I didn't exceed the bake time. Also, I'm out of honey so I used agave nectar and they benefitted from that extra bit of sweetness! Thanks, Leah's Kitchen! Made for N*A*M*E tag game.

I love dates and these bars are really good! I worked the crust ingredients with my hands and was able to get a nice smooth and moist crust. I made half a recipe and cooked it 20 minutes. Very tasty - thanks for posting the recipe!

Taste was good, but they were really crumbly and difficult to cut. Mine took longer than recommended to cook. I added a little all spice to the dates which was nice. I also added candied walnuts on top of the dates - again, a yummy addition.

These were so delicious! We are all crazy for dates in our house, and this was completely gone within the first 4 hours of baking. Thank you!
