Are you ready for a delicious, healthy dessert that will please the whole family? Then check out today’s Date, Oat And Nut Dessert recipe and start baking.

This slice is so yummy it is perfect as a hot dessert served with cream, custard or ice cream, or enjoyed cold and cut up into healthy oat bars. Or you might have both – the decision is yours. 

We often use it as an energy bars recipe and the little ones love it. Just cook the mixture for a little longer to set it and pop it into the freezer until it is firm enough to cut into bars.
