How to make it

  • Add dates, water, brown sugar, and cook in pot over medium heat, stirring often, until dates are soft and mixture is thickened (about 15 minutes) YMMV - your mileage may vary
  • Stir in lemon juice and remove from heat
  • Let cool
  • Optional: You can microwave date mixture, but you will be on your own for settings and how long.
  • Combine oats, flour, salt, soda, sugar in bowl
  • Add butter, cutting into mixture until crumbly
  • Press 1/2 crumb mixture into bottom of 9 inch square pan
  • Spread cooled filling evenly over the top of bottom layer
  • Spread remaining crumble mixture over date mixture
  • Bake in a 350F oven for 20-25 minutes or until top is nicely toasted.
  • Let cool before cutting into squares
