This is a nice reduced-fat bar cookie that I found on All Recipes. My daughters and I enjoy the strong honey flavor in these cookies.
HONEY NUT BARS

- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder

- 1/2 cup dates, pitted and chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8″ square cake pan.
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Add the honey and eggs and whisk well. Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt – blend with the honey/egg mixture. Stir in the walnuts and dates. Spread batter in prepared pan.
Bake for 25 minutes @ 350 degrees F until light brown. Let cool on a rack for 5-10 minutes. With a sieve, sprinkle confectioners’ sugar over the top.
When cool, cut into bars.
