They say that the best gifts to give are the ones that you’d want to keep yourself, and there’s no question that that will be the case with these decadent Chocolate Date Oat Bars. There are so many occasions to send a care package—whether it’s a kid away at sleepaway camp, a friend going through cancer treatment, or just to say I love you—and these bars are up for the task. The crust is sturdy enough to withstand shipping, and the date filling offers fruity sweetness without the soggy factor of a jam center. Chocolate chips are up to you, but one thing is not, you’ll probably need to bake a double batch to keep some for yourself. They’re just that delicious.
