GLUTEN-FREE OATMEAL DATE BARS
Prepare to bake. Heat the oven to 350°. Grease an 8×8 square pan with the fat of your choice.
Chop the dates. Chop the dates as finely as you can, chopping in rhythm, back and forth, until the date pieces are all less than 1/2-inch big.
Make the batter. Set a small pan on medium heat. Melt the butter in the hot pan. Remove it from the heat and pour the butter into a large bowl. Add the dates to the bowl and coat them with the butter. Add the sugar, almond flour, baking powder, and kosher salt. Stir them all up with a rubber spatula. Add the egg, vanilla, and oats. Stir it all up until everything is evenly incorporated.
Pat the dough into the prepared pan and spread it evenly to the edges of the pan.
Bake the cookies. Bake until the edges of the cookie are browning, the center set, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.
Let the cookies cool for 30 minutes, then cut it into squares and serve.
