    Chicopee's Note:

    Got this from my mother-in-law. If she had told me ahead of time there were dates in this I may never have tried it. mmmmm good secret: must be prepared day ahead.

      Yet aNOTHER fabulous recipe from a RZ member! OMG this is amazing! I had some leftover dates that I needed to use up and found this recipe. I am SO glad I did. My kids devoured it! A keeper for sure! I don't know how people dream up some of these recipes...they're truly amazing to the un-creative, such as myself! Thank you for sharing such a light and flavorful recipe! xo LA

      Wonderful! I turned this into a cake for my brother's birthday. He doesn't like nuts so I subbed coconut in the topping and it was fantastic. I also used butter instead of marg., chopped up dark chocolate instead of chips, added a bit of oatmeal and a spoonful of cocoa to the batter. My brother took one bite and said, "YOU MADE THIS FROM SCRATCH!?" I packed it in my husband's lunch on the third day and he told me it was, "Friggin' awesome." and "Really, really, really, really good" Those are all five star reviews in my book. :) Thanks for posting!

      Really good, added a banana and it was even better, topped with brown sugar instead of white sugar and made it crunchy. Also added health bar crunch to topping too
