Date-Pecan Bars

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/date_pecan_bars.html

From EatingWell:  July/August 1995, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Here, graham cracker crumbs, dates and nuts are folded into beaten eggs and sugar to make a wonderfully chewy bar that's much lighter than traditional recipes.

15 bars | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Coat an 8-by-12-inch or 7-by-11-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Stir together coffee powder and vanilla in a large bowl until the powder dissolves. Add sugar, eggs, egg white and salt and beat with an electric mixer on high speed until thick and pale, about 2 minutes. Fold in graham cracker crumbs, dates and pecans. Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan; smooth the top.
  3. Bake the bars until the top feels dry and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.
  4. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars. If desired, dust lightly with confectioners’ sugar.
