I liked these bars and they are very fast and easy to make. I didn't have any dates so used raisins. The second batch I left out the raisins and added mini choc. chips instead. Even Better!! Will make these again! Read More

This bar was lite and yummy! A perfect combo of soft and gooey. I didn't have walnuts so I subbed almonds and I didn't quite have enough honey so I used 1/4 cup brown rice syrup too. I mixed in some coconut flakes (unsweetened) into the mixture as well as on top. This is one of those treats that I feel good about sharing with my son and others because I know it's naturally sweetened! I'll be making this one often as an afternoon snack. Read More

Very easy to make and tasty too! I used dried cranberries instead of the nuts an interesting flavor combination with the dates! I'm looking forward to making them again with different dried fruits! Read More

Forgot the powdered sugar on top but it didn't matter! These were delicious! Almost like cake super sweet with a definite honey flavor. BTW I used whole wheat flour and they were still light and fluffy. Read More

Excellent recipe. I love the idea of the honey mixed with the dates. Something that I have never thought of before. Personally I buy all my honey from Holy Food Imports. They grow their products in Israel and sell them in the US. Read More

Very yummy good-for-you snack! I've made these quite a few times now both with and without the powdered sugar topping. They make a great healthier option for desert and are a great snack as well. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
