Made these tonight, and they are very sweet and delicious. I highly suggest reading Lorrie's review before making these.
I doubled the recipe and used a larger pan. I pre-baked the bottom oatmeal crumb layer for about 20 minutes before adding the date mixture. I used half the brown sugar in the date mixture and it was plenty sweet.
I used Hadley's Medjool dates in the recipe. Very large, sweet and super moist. Spray the knife with "Pam" or coat with oil before chopping dates, and no mess!
When cooking the dates, I substituted brewed coffee for half the water. You can't taste the coffee, but I think it adds a deeper layer of richness.
My husband hates dates but wants me to save a few of these for him.
Making the changes above and allowing to cool completely in the pan makes the bars very easy to cut and serve.
So glad to have discovered this recipe!
