I love dates, but I have never cooked with them before, so I was excited to try these. I modified this so much that my rating almost doesn't apply to the recipe as written! I used half whole wheat and half all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup brown sugar and 2/3 of a large, very ripe banana (for extra moisture and flavor), 1/2 cup walnuts (didn't have enough!) and 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips. I also skipped the powdered sugar. As noted, these had to bake a lot longer than the recipe stated (about 35 minutes), and needed a much larger pan (9x13). They came out really tasty though, although almost too sweet for my taste, so I may add even less sugar next time I make them. I might even try making them as muffins.
