After reading some of the other reviews, I decided to alter this a little bit and I am very pleased with how they turned out! I used 3 cups of rolled oats, but I ground one cup in the blender first, and used some of the oat flour to assist me in chopping the dates. (They can be very sticky when fresh!) I used coconut oil for both flavor and nutrition, and also added 1/2 cup chopped raisins and 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, for more sweetness. I highly recommend adding 1/2 -1tsp salt! This might be why some thought the cookies tasted flat. Also a good shake of cinnamon and about 1/2 tsp cardamom. They turned out sweet enough to satisfy our family, including my 7 year old daughter, who generally hates granola bars. Baked at 325 F, convection, for about 17 minutes, until browning at the edges and on bottom. I will make these again for sure, and will experiment with other dried fruits. Very moist and snack-worthy! (:
