Date Squares

I've never tried making this gluten-free. A one-to-one GF flour will probably work well.


750    ml   chopped dates
60     ml   white sugar
300    ml   water

Cook the above in a small pot, stirring constantly 
until it begins to thicken (10 or 15 minutes).
Allow to cool.

440    ml   flour
2.5    ml   baking soda
5      ml   salt (I usually just throw in a pinch)
180    ml   butter
250    ml   brown sugar (packed)
375    ml   GF quick oats

Cut the flour and sugar into the butter. Add the 
baking soda, salt and (GF) oats. You should have 
a crumbly mixture.

Spread half of this mixture on the bottom of a 
greased baking dish (24x34 cm). Press it down 
firmly.  Spread the date mixture evenly on top. 
Sprinkle the remaining crumble mixture on top.

Bake for 25 - 30 minutes at 175 °C.

Enjoy!
