    I love dates & I enjoy bars, so I was pretty sure this would be A GREAT TREAT, which it was! I used the very moist & chewy Medjool dates for this & we really liked the addition of the citrus! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]
