Gluten Free Teff Date Slice

The naturally sweet date layer baked into the middle of these slices provides the perfect treat between two oaty crumbly layers.  We used coconut oil but also bake this recipe swapping it for dairy butter or a vegan spread.

  7. Remove the tray from the oven and spread date mash over the oat base.
