DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Combine dates, 1 TSP of brown sugar and orange juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and cook, stirring often, until dates are soft enough to be mashed with a fork. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, blend all-purpose flour, buckwheat flour, flax, wheat bran, baking soda and salt.
  • Cut in butter/margarine until mixture resembles course crumbs.
  • Stir in brown sugar, maple/golden syrup, oats and millet, but do not over mix. Mixture should stay crumbly.
  • Press half of crumb mixture over bottom of lightly buttered 8x8-inch pan to form bottom crust.
  • Gently spread date filling over bottom crust.
  • Sprinkle remaining oat mixture over date filling and lightly pat with palm of hand to even out.
  • Bake for 25 minutes at 350°F.
  • Allow to cool a bit in the pan and cut into squares.
