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. :-(

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.

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!

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!
