DATE CHRUNCHIES
http://lekkerreseptevirdiejongergeslag.blogspot.com/2015/05/date-chrunchies.html
5oz/150g oats
5oz/150g self raising flour (white or wholemeal)
2 and a half oz/60g brown sugar
5oz/150g softened butter
2 blocks of dried dates about 1lb/500g in total

Place the dates with about 3 tblsp water into a saucepan (or covered bowl in the microwave) and heat gently until they soften to a spreadable paste.
Meanwhile, rub the remaining ingredients together as though making pastry.
Press half the mixture into the base of a rectangular baking tray 11x7'' or 28/18cm.
Spread the dates on top and then sprinkle over the remaining oat mixture and press down lightly.
Bake at 180c for about 30 minutes.
Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
