A great snack, which is packed full of dietary fibre. They are moist, lightly spiced and incredibly moreish. For the best flavour, let them sit for a few days.
Finally a date bar that is moist and holds together. I shared these bars with my neighbor and she loved them as much as my husband did! I did increase the cinnamon to 1/4 teaspoon. I didn't use the confectioners' sugar, once we tried them without we decided they were perfect the way they were. Great recipe! - 09 Jun 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious! I made a few changes just for personal preference, I reduced the dates to 1 1/4 cups, added 1/4 cup of golden raisins, and increased the walnuts to one full cup. I also used 2/3 cup of brown sugar and 1/3 cup of white sugar and added 1 tsp of vanilla. Also increased the cinnamon to 1/4 tsp and left off the powdered sugar as others suggested. Although I'm sure this would be awesome as it's originally written. I will be adding this to my recipe books. - 01 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this is a delicious recipe. the only thing i added is a teaspoon of vanilla. once cooled in the fridge overnight, it was firmer and chewier to the bite. i love it! - 09 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
