By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Orange Zest Maple Date Bars might be just the dessert you are searching for. This recipe serves 8 and costs $1.63 per serving. One serving contains 472 calories, 4g of protein, and 13g of fat. It is a good option if you're following a lacto ovo vegetarian diet. 14 people have made this recipe and would make it again. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes around around 45 minutes. This recipe from Foodista requires flour, water, cup maple syrup, and orange zest. With a spoonacular score of 31%, this dish is rather bad. Maple Whipped Sweet Potatoes with Orange Zest, Maple-Date Bars, and Maple-Date Bars are very similar to this recipe.

Date Bars can be paired with Cream Sherry, Moscato d'Asti, and Port. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. The NV Solera Cream Sherry with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 17 dollars per bottle.

NV Solera Cream Sherry

The Solera Cream Sherry has a brilliant amber and deep copper hue. With butterscotch and pecan aromas, the sweet salted nut and brown spice aromas carry a complex caramel accent. A sweet entry leads to a rounded, lush, moderately full-bodied palate with a lengthy, flavorful finish.

Instructions

Pit the dates and chop them up into little pieces. In a medium sauce pan, combine water, dates and maple syrup and bring to a boil, stirring often. Once at a boil, add the citrus peels and stir. Turn the heat down to medium and cook down until most of the water is gone. When it starts to look like jam, its done. Place sauce pan in a freezer to quickly cool down the mixture. When date jam is cooled, preheat the oven to 400F and begin to prepare the rest of the recipe. Combine flour, baking soda, salt and oats in a bowl and whisk together. In another large mixing bowl, beat sugar and butter until creamy. Add the dry ingredients to the butter and cream and mix with a spatula or large wooden spoon until completely mixed. The texture will look quite crumbly. Coat a 13x9-inch metal baking pan with cooking spray. Then begin layering your ingredients carefully. A.Layer half of the crumb mixture and press down in the pan to make the bottom layer crust. B.CAREFULLY spread your date jam on top of the crumb crust using a spatula sprayed with some oil. C.Finally, sprinkle the remainder of the crumb mixture on top of the date jam. Bake for about 20-30 minutes, until the top is golden. Cool completely before cutting.
