A sweet delicacy these lemon date bars. And as a plus no refined sugars are added. With oatmeal and whole wheat flour
A delicious sweet delicacy these lemon date bars, with the advantage that no sugar has been added. Well, there are dates and honey in it, but no refined sugars. And thanks to the use of oatmeal and wholegrain flour, they contain also a lot of fiber in it. The combination of the lemon with the date gives a nice touch. This is really a bar that you can eat if you need some energy once. A healthier snack, so to speak.
It’s a good taste!
