    Chef*Lee's Note:

    This is the third installment of my date bar experiments! I love dates and I love to see what I can make out of them! I put a layer of marzipan in these date bars and they turned out really good! I hope you like them!

      We enjoyed these bars. They are unusual with the layer of marzipan in the middle. Don't let the marzipan stick out as it goes hard in the oven. Just make sure the oat mixture covers the marzipan completely.
