1. Preheat the oven to 180C fan and grease a square tin (20x20cm) well with butter. You can line the tin with baking paper if you'd rather, it can be a bit tricky to spread the oat mixture on top.
2. Place the dates in a saucepan with the 150ml of water and place over a medium heat, cooking gently for 5-10 minutes. You want the dates to be nice and squishy to make a spreadable paste. Even if you have chosen stoned dates, there can be a few stones that remain, look out for any and remove where needed. Leave this date puree to cool.

Now for the Blog - I've been putting off writing this first blog post for a couple of reasons.
What to say - this is my "Hello World" post! I just want to introduce myself and what Food at Twelve and it's ideas are about and why I created it without waffling and sounding like just another person who likes food and thinks they can write.
I'm not a blogger - I'd like this blog page to be like a cup of tea with a piece of cake, a little escape in the world. It's going to be a place where thoughts are written, recipes are found and tested, ideas for growing are contained, it will be fun and probably random - not ground break...
