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.
Very nice. Perfect end to our Moroccan meal. Made for Queens of Quisine ZWT6
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!
I really like these cookies even though it takes some time and patience to make them. Thank you for sharing! Made for Ramadan Tag Game 2009
