Barley-Date Cakes

  • Barley-Date Cakes


It's like squishy oatmeal cookies!


  • 1 cup rolled barley (or instant oatmeal)
  • ¼ cup dates
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

Cooking Instructions

Mix this shit in a glass bowl. Microwave it for 2-5 minutes (barley takes longer than instant oatmeal), until it thickens. Let it continue to set for about half an hour, until it’s really pretty globby. Grease a cookie sheet (or foil on a cookie sheet if you’re smart) and drop globs of barley goo on it. Should make 8-10. Bake for ~30 minutes @ 350F/180C, until the outside is relatively firm and brown, and they peel off the foil fairly easily. Let cool for about five minutes so you don’t set your face on fire trying to eat them.
