Date Squares

2 cups chopped dates
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup boiling water
1 1/4 cups flour
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup bran cereal
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cook dates, sugar and water over medium heat stirring often until dates are soft (15 minutes); cool. Combine flour, oats, bran cereal, brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Blend in butter until crumbly. Pat 1/2 of the mixture into a 9″ square pan. Spread date filling evenly over layer. Sprinkle with remaining oat mixture, patting very lightly. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until lightly browned. Allow to cool before cutting.
