Chewy Nutty Date Oatmeal Bars

This is my adaption of a recipe off the back of my oatmeal box.....reminds me of my Dad....he would have loved these!  He always added dates and nuts to his cookies.....I'd see him in the afternoon nibbling on one and he'd always share one with Mom and me... My mother gives it 5 stars! If you like dates & coconut.....these will knock your socks off!  Enjoy~
