Spoon your oat bar mixture into the greased baking dish and spread evenly across the dish, smoothing out the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the oatmeal is golden brown and aromatic. 

 

Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes or so. While the oat bars are cooling, start on the date caramel.
