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

  • 2 Tblsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
  • 1/2 cup dates, pitted and chopped
  • Confectioners’ sugar for topping

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.
