Good but too sweet. The dates and bananas are both sweet so it doesn’t need 3/4 cups of brown sugar. I cut back to 1/2 cup but next time will try 1/4.

Really easy recipe that turned out well. I subbed 1 cup of oatmeal flour, less sugar, added 1 tsp cinnamon. Chopped walnut crumble on top. Yum!

Made these a few weeks ago. Delicious! I also threw some chopped pecans in them for some extra texture. I love simple recipes that use up ingredients I have on hand.
