    mielhollinger's Note:

    Also known as the "matrimonial square," this recipe overflows with wholesome goodness, given the oats and the dates, which are full of iron. Date squares are a prestigious confection perfect for those unexpected occasions when royalty comes a knocking. (This recipe is from the cookbook "How It All Vegan.")

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil, then reduce to medium heat and add the dates and 1/2 tsp of the salt, and simmer until the dates are soft and will mix easily with the water.
    3. 3
      Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
    4. 4
      In a large bowl, stir together the oat flakes, flour, sweetener, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
    5. 5
      Add the margarine and oil and stir together until well combined.
    6. 6
      If the crust is too dry, add the optional water.
    7. 7
      Press half of the crust mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
    8. 8
      Spread the date mixture over the top, spreading out with the back of a large spoon.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle the remaining crust mixture over the top.
    10. 10
      Bake for 25-40 minutes, until the top is lightly browned and tender.
    11. 11
      Crust will harden when it cools so cut into squares before it gets too difficult!
