1 3/4 cup flour

1 3/4 cup oatmeal

1 3/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon soda

1 cup melted butter

2 cups chopped dates

1/4 cup sugar

1 cup water

1 cup chopped pecans

In a small sauce pan combine dates, sugar, water and nuts. Cook on medium heat stirring frequently until it thickens. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl combine flour, oatmeal, brown sugar and soda. Mix well and then stir in melted butter until we’ll combined.

Place 1/2 of mixture in a 9×13 pan and press down to cover entire pan. Spread date/nut mixture over bottom layer and top with remaining dough. Bake 30-40 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. Cool completely before cutting in squares. Cut squares small. These bars are very rich and a little goes along way.
