2 cups chopped dates
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts or pecans)

1 3/4 all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups rolled oats (not instant)
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk or sour milk

*( To make the sour milk you add 1/2 Tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice to room temperature milk).

In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt and stir in the rolled oats.

In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed.

Mix in dry ingredients alternately with the buttermilk (or sour milk). Mix until well combined.

Press half of this mixture into the prepared pan.

Cover with the date filling.

Top with the remaining dough and pat smooth.

Place into the preheated oven and bake 35 to 40 minutes.

Remove from the oven to a cooling rack.

Let cool and cut into squares.
