- 450g of pitted dates
- 220ml of water
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 20g of lemon juice
Crumble dough :
- 175g of oatmeal
- 170g of flour
- 150g of blond or brown vergeoise
- 225g of semi-salted butter
Mix the dates partially, but not totally.
If there are pieces, that’s fine! Set aside while preparing the rest of the recipe.
Put all the ingredients for the dough in the bowl of your food processor.
Without a food processor, mix with your fingertips. Otherwise, use the sheet.
Mix until you have a kind of crumble dough.
Flatten the dough by hand.
Remove from the oven and pour in all the date paste.
Spread evenly with a spoon.
Pour in the remaining batter, this time making crumble pieces. Press the dough a little without forcing it. This will prevent the pieces from falling into powder after cooking.
Return to the oven for 35-40 minutes at 170°C. Keep an eye on the coloring.
Let cool completely before cutting into squares.
