Super Easy Sticky Date Bars

I made these for our weekend away we had SUCH a blast! Will post a review of the place we went to soon.

This recipe is in the “Recipes from the Royal Kitchen” supplement that came with the June issue of the Food and Home Magazine, and they are divine!

Sticky Date Bar Ingredients:

250ml / 1 cup Cake Flour 
8ml / 1 ½ tsp Royal Baking Powder 
2ml / ¼ tsp Salt 
5ml / 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon 
60ml / ¼ cup Light Brown Sugar 
60ml / ¼ cup Digestive Bran 
100g chopped pitted Dates 
50g Pecan Nuts (you can leave these out if you want)
80ml / 1/3 cup Golden Syrup / Honey 
80ml / 1/3 cup Milk 

Sticky Date Bar Method: 

Sift flour, Royal Baking Powder, salt and cinnamon together Add sugar, bran, dates & nuts Add syrup and milk and mix well Press mixture into a greased 20 x 20 cm baking pan and bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 20 – 25 minutes. Leave to cool before cutting into squares.

I added more dates, and I would advise you not to let the date bars cool completely before cutting them into squares.. it was quite a mission! Super easy and delicious!
