There's an organic bakery that uses locally-sourced ingredients called Bread & Sons in Ottawa, Ontario at the corner of Cooper and Bank. They sell delicious organic date squares made with millet. I tried to find a recipe but couldn't so I made up my own instead. Mine aren't identical to Bread & Sons', but I think my recipe is pretty successful all the same. The millet gives the date square a crunchy texture that's really nice.
I've lowered the butter and sugar content of typical date squares, but you could increase it if you prefer. Also, where I use 3/8 cup all-purpose flour, 3/8 cup buckwheat flour, 1/8 cup ground flax seed and 1/8 cup wheat bran (for a total of 1 cup), you could simplify it by using just 1 cup of all-purpose flour.
I'd love to receive feedback on how I could improve this recipe. Please leave comments!
