19 Dec Oatmeal Date Bar
I shared these Oatmeal Date Bars at Body Boot Camp this morning for our 12 Days of Christmas Workout. They are delicious! Recipe is below:
- 1 cup chopped dates
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 1 egg white
In a small saucepan, combine the dates, water and sugar. Cook and
stir until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered,
for 5 minutes or until mixture is thickened, stirring constantly.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda
and salt. Stir in the butter and egg white until blended. Pat half
of the mixture into an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking
Carefully spread with date mixture. Gently pat remaining oat
mixture over date mixture.
Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on
a wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 16 servings.
