The other day I was looking for something to add to lunch boxes that was a bit of a treat but also quick and easy to make.  This date slice ticked all of the boxes!  It was in the oven in about 3 minutes from me deciding to make it, and all the ingredients are ones that you would normally have in your pantry.  You could also try making it with other dried fruit, but I think the dates work really well!
