    Very moist almost brownie textured bars. The dates are mixed in with the flavourful oatmeal base. Great served warm.

      Wow, these were really good. I made them to the recipe, except I didn't have skim milk powder so I had to omit it (now I think I will go ahead and buy the skim milk powder just for this). I actually didn't know what to expect when I made these in terms of consistency and was pleasantly pleased to find they're kind have a brownie consistency - kind of like a thick kind of chewy cookie. I had never used dates in baking before, and I found they had a nice toffee like flavor and kind of melted into a chewy caramel like consistency. I baked half the batch for the recommended time and the other half for about 10 minutes longer until golden brown on top. Cooking a bit longer kind of softened the flavors a bit (which was good as I found the molasses was somewhat strong), and it also gave them a perfect combination of crunchiness and chewiness which I personally just love. But either way, these were delicious. Thanks!

      Great recipe. Being in England, I used treacle instead of molases and didn't have any milk powder, so I elminated that. I was pleased with the moistness and taste and my husband decided that with the addition of walnuts this would be a fine substitute for date walnut cake that he adores. I baked it in a smaller dish, so they were a bit thicker and cakier. Well done!

      I gave this recipe 5 stars because it is really really good tasting and a nice cake like texture. I especially liked that it was low in sugar and fat. I did make some modifications however to accommodate the tastes of my family. The molasses were replaced by maple syrup. I omitted the wheat germ, milk powder, cinnamon and baking soda. I added 1/4 cup of soya milk and upped the date content to 1 cup. I baked it in a deep dish pie plate for 30 minutes, same temp. This would make a great breakfast dish. It is really good warm.
