My third date bar. What can I say, I'm addicted to dates. I think I've finally realized though, that to achieve the denser texture I'm looking for, I would omit or drastically reduce all leavening agents. Secondly, this would have been even better with more banana, at least one more big ripe one. Then, more almonds and dates, at least so that it's 1 and 1/4 cup dates and 3/4 cup almonds. I had to use oil instead of butter, just because I was out, and it ended up fine, just a little dry. If using oil make sure to add 1/4 a cup of some other moisture, like applesauce, oil, or butter. Due to a dislike of icings and frostings, I omitted it all together and served the bar heated with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. I actually wanted to make this recipe because I had old bananas and I wanted to try something different rather than banana bread, but to me it really was exactly like banana bread. I really wish I had added more dates and almonds!
