Great recipe! I made it without any sugar by substituting apple juice for the water. I am also gluten free so I used almond meal in place of the flour. It was delicious!

Thanks Michele! These bars were just delicious. The frosting is a big part of their appeal for me. I added Cinnamon, Cardamom, Nutmeg and Cloves to the batter to make them Orange Spice Date Bars.

This is to die for good. The cake part is yum by itself, but the frosting takes it from good to amazing. I followed the recipe exactly.

very nice cake bars but added anise seeds to it which made it very tasty. so thats why i am giving it fours stars, and also had to cut the sugar back to a little more than half.

Excellent flavor and fairly easy to prepare. I have never made or eaten date bars before so I can't say how the date flavor comes through, but I thought they were very tasty as did my whole family. I ommited the orange zest in both the bars and frosting as I just don't care for zest. I increased the amount of OJ in the batter by a couple of tablespoons instead. The batter is very much the consistancy of a thick pancake batter. The recipe didn't state when to add the pecans so I mixed them in last. I put it in a glass pan instead of the jelly roll pan because I think it would have spilled over. The recipe for the frosting makes way too much. Half to 2/3 of the recipe would have been enough. I also added two tablespoons of milk to make it creamy before adding the OJ. These were very good and I will definately make them again.
