Date Oaties

Hello readers,

Today, I was offered a delicious date oat flapjack by my Grandma. Luckily I was offered the recipe. Here it is;

1 pound of porridge oats,
2 oz of flour (plain or white spelt)
4 oz of honey (or agave nectar/syrup)
6 oz of margarine (or butter)
6 oz of light brown sugar (optional)
8 oz of cooked dates

Melt the honey, margarine and sugar (depending on whether you are using it or not) together in a saucepan.
Add the oats and flour and mix thoroughly.
Using a wooden spoon, press out half of the mixture into a lined, greased, deep tin.
Measure out the dates and blitz until course, squishy crumbs in a food processor.
Top the dates with the remaining oats and flatten down.
Bake at Gas Mark 4 for about half an hour or until golden brown and crisp on top.
Cut into squares or bars.

Please comment below if you have a go at these at home!

Many thanks,
