Dates and ginger are two ingredients that are made for each other. Add in some coconut for a magical mix that creates an amazing aroma as it bakes – and tastes even better.

Ingredients

White self-raising flour

1 cup(s), (150g)

Fresh dates

140 g, pitted, coarsely chopped

Shredded or desiccated coconut

cup(s), (55g)

Caster sugar

cup(s), (75g)

Crystallised ginger

½ cup(s), coarsely chopped (110g)

Egg(s)

1 medium, lightly beaten

Reduced fat oil spread

¼ cup(s), melted (65g)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly spray a 16 cm x 26 cm slice tin with oil. Line the base and two long sides with baking paper, extending paper 5 cm above edge of tin.
  2. Combine flour, dates, coconut, sugar and ginger in a large bowl. Stir in egg and oil spread until combined. Press mixture evenly into prepared tin. Bake for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool in tin. Cut into 15 squares.
