Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 cups chopped dates

Heat oven to 350°. Combine the flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, with electric mixer, beat butter and sugars at medium speed until light and fluffy.
