That looks amazing!

No added sugar in the dates and only 1/4 cup of brown sugar in topping and base combined. I used coconut oil instead of butter. You could eat these now that I think about it.

For The Date Filling
  • 1.5 cups (220g) dates
  • 1 cup (200ml) water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)— not optional in my opinion and a squeeze of lemon too
  • Pinch of salt (optional)
For The Crumble
  • 1 cup (110g) oat flour— I used that gluten free flour by King Arthur because I had it
  • 1 cup (90g) oats 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) almond butter
  • 2 tbsp granulated sweetener like Xylitol (optional)— that stuff is poison. Use brown sugar.

    Preheat your oven to 180*C (160*C fan assisted)/ 350*F

    First make the date filling - add the dates to a pan and start off by adding 1/2 a cup (100ml) of water. Cook on high until the water starts to boil then turn the heat to low. Start mashing the the dates using the back of a wooden spoon. Add more water as needed until you have a smooth, thick, but spreadable date paste. Leave to cool.  Really needs to be cool to put in pan.

    In a large bowl, mix together the oat flour, oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cardamom and sweetener if using any.
  • 4
    Place the oat mixture in a food processor along with the coconut oil and almond butter.
  • 5
    Pulse until everything is well combined and you have a crumble like mixture.  I used a pastry blender. 
  • 6
    Transfer 2/3 of the oat mixture into an 8" cake tin lined with parchment paper. Press the mixture down firmly into an even layer.
  • 7
    Spread the date mixture on top, then crumble the remaining 1/3 of the oat mixture on top.
  • 8
    Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • 9
    Leave to cool completely, then slice.

    Enjoy!  I doubled it to make a bigger pan.
