How-To-Make Pecan Date Bars

  1. Soak the dates in a bowl of hot water.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 and butter an 8×8” baking dish.
  3. Mix the oats, flour, 1/2 cup of the raw sugar, and baking soda. With hands, mix in softened butter until evenly distributed in oat mixture. Set 3/4 cup of the mixture aside. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of your baking pan and bake for 10 minutes.
  4. In a medium saucepan mix the yolks, 1/2 cup of raw sugar, cornstarch, and kefir. Heat on medium-low, stirring occasionally, until thickened. When thick, remove from heat. Stir in dates and pecans.
  5. Once the crust is done, remove from the oven and top with the kefir filling. Spread it evenly and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  6. Take the bars out and crumble the remaining oat mixture evenly over the bars. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
  7. Wait until cool to cut them.
