Ingredients:
1 c dates
1.5 c apple juice
1 c oat flour
2 c rolled oats
¾ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
3 bananas
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ c blueberries, frozen
½ c walnuts
Directions: 
  1. Cut dates in half, remove the pits and soak them in apple juice.
  2. Lay a piece of parchment paper in a 9 x 9 in baking pan, making sure the sides are covered. Cut slits in the corners of the paper so that the paper overlaps and is flat.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Combine flour, oats, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a bowl. Mix and set aside.
  5. Put the bananas and vanilla extract into a blender. Add the strained apple juice to the blender, set dates aside, and blend until creamy.
  6. Then add the dates. Pulse a few times, so the dates are in small pieces.
  7. Pour the banana mixture into the dry ingredient bowl. Mix until blended evenly. Stir in the blueberries and walnuts.
  8. Pour the batter into baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  9. Test for doneness, by poking bars with a fork. If it comes out clean then remove pan from oven.
  10. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before cutting and serving.
