Preheat oven to 350° F.

Chop dates in a food processor until smooth. Add ginger and blend well. In a bowl, combine oat flour, oats and almonds. In another bowl, combine oil, maple syrup, almond extract and sea salt. Mix wet and dry ingredients together until just combined.

Lightly spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Press half of the flour mixture into the bottom of the baking pan. Spread pureed dates over the top, then press the rest of the flour mixture onto the dates. Sprinkle crystallized ginger and optional chocolate chips or nuts over the top.

Bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool then cut into squares. Enjoy!
