A not-too-sweet tasty bar. Simple and quick too.

I couldn't wait to try this recipe. Seemed simple enough, and it was. I always taste the dough, and it seemed bland. But, I figured maybe it's one of those that taste better after it's baked. It's eww! My son even spit out the one bite he took. It just doesn't have any flavor. Good ingredients, just bad combo for our family. :-(

I thought these were amazing. I just happened to have some chopped dates around that I needed to use up. I was very happy the way these turned out! I did add 1 c. of milk chocolate chips for an extra kick. I'll be making these for Xmas gifts!

Great recipe. There's this great Web Site that sells fresh dates from Israel. They're delicious. The site is Just in case anyone else out there loves making recipes with dates.

Love these! I added coconut on top -like a review suggested. Can't wait to eat them with my coffee in the morning.

Awesome recipe! About as dense as a brownie, and with the dates, about 1-2 a day will suffice!

I had every ingredient available for this recipe, it wasn't to my liking. I could not taste anything passed the Cardamom. The bar was sticky thick but baked through. The instructions for the recipe were pretty simple but not being able to taste any other ingredient. I feel the cardamom could have been left out. Please note, that you need to be very liberal with the non-stick cooking spray for this recipe, brown sugar tends to stick harder then a cake when baked in a pan and you will find that a recipe like this won't come out of a pan as easy. Recommend spraying with non-stick spray and lining the bottom with parchment paper or wax paper for easy removal of the baked item.

I added 1T. oil because it seemed to dry. I also sprinkled coconut on top before baking. Divine
