    will definately be making these. they sound healthy and i love any kind of date cookie.
    by any chance Martha, could you also make a sugar-free version of fig newtons. i need sugar-free versions of cookies for my health and all they have is fat-free, but they do not make a sugar-free version.
    Please help!!!!!

  • 31 May, 2010

    Does anyone know if I can substitute Oat bran for wheat bran?

  • 28 Mar, 2010

    Recipe directions mention adding baking soda however no baking soda is listed in the ingredients list.

    You could probably use any dense dried fruit if you don't like dates. You might even be able to use canned filling like Solo brand poppy seed or other fillings(not pie filling, too runny). I'm going to try this one; sounds good. I'm also going to pull out my Joy of Cooking and check out that date bar. Thanks for the comments!

    To Ceege: Go to Joyofbaking.com and look at the toolbar on the left hand side. I have used the Date Square, Butter Tart Square, and Millionaire Shortbread Bar recipes with great success. This recipe is good, but I like the ones on Joyofbaking.com better. Anyway, I hope this helps. Much success and many blessings. Regards, Junecutie

    Whats the qty of Baking soda? it is not in the ingredients list..

  • 23 Mar, 2009

    I have yet to try this recipe but I think it looks great. Homemade date bars with no perservatives and whole grains. It's worth the work , I think :-)

    To Spiceycat

    where do you get the Joy of Baking recipe for the date bar cookies. I went to their site, but it was all about buying recipe books.....I could not find anyway to just get a recipe......

  • 23 Mar, 2009

    There are a lot of websites where you can put in the ingredients in a recipie and it can figure out the calorie count for you. Just search for it.

  • 23 Mar, 2009

    That is exactly what I was looking for......Do they have the calorie count anywhere on the website?

  • 23 Mar, 2009

    This receipe sounds like too much work, too much butter, too, too much. I use the
    excellent Joy of Cooking date bar receipe which is made in a large pan. Lots of compliments plus seconds and thirds.

  • 23 Mar, 2009

    I was just thinking the same thing.

  • 23 Mar, 2009

    wish these recipes had calorie and nutrition count
