These date bars make for the perfect mid-afternoon snack.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of homemade date bars. These make a great mid-day snack. They're just slightly sweet very easy to make. The crust is made with oats, butter, and brown sugar. The filling is made with dates plus sugar and water, blended into a sweet, tart paste. The remaining dough for the crust gets sprinkled on top and they're baked for about 25 minutes.
