Dates Nut Bars

Date Raisin Bars

An easy recipe of a  delicious snack !!!

Makes – 9 – 12 bars

Please use same measuring cup to measure flour, sugar, dates and nuts. I've used 1/3 cup to measure flour, sugar, nuts and dates. 


For the flour:

2 cups all purpose flour / maida (please measure in  1/3 cup)

½ teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon powder

Sieve twice above ingredients and keep aside.

Other ingredients

½ teaspoon butter (to grease a baking dish)

2 cups sugar (or 1 ½ to 2 cup – according to taste)

2 cups finely chopped dates (please use good quality soft dates)

2 tablespoon finely chopped  cashew nuts (or chop 12 - 15 cashew nuts)

1 tablespoon raisins

1 egg (big size - 55 - 60 g) beat well

2 tablespoon melted butter

1 tablespoon milk

½ teaspoon vanilla essence


In a wide bowl, mix sugar, chopped dates, cashew nuts, raisins, beaten egg, melted butter, milk and vanilla essence with sieved flour. Mix it with a thick tablespoon until all the ingredients well combined. Consistency should be thicker than normal cake batter.

Preheat oven  at 350 * F or 180 * C. Grease a  baking pan with ½ teaspoon butter.

Spread  thick batter in prepared  pan, and bake  for 18 – 20 minutes  / golden brown color / until a toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean / leaves from the sides of the pan. Keep aside to cool for half an hour and cut into desired  shape and size.
