Date Raw Energy Bars.
They are delicious and easy. Everything takes a whirl in the food processor, then you press into a 9x13 baking sheet, and chill. You can cut them to whatever length works best for the size of your kid's appetite.
I have also found that you can substitute different types of nuts or seeds for the almonds or cashews.
I haven't tried yet to add dried fruit. And I add 1/2 cup water instead of just 3 tablespoons, making the bars a little softer, but also easier to chew.
|I like Bob's Red Mill Date Crumbles. I've found there is no chance of pits that way. A pit in your food processor ..ugh.|
I also often do half the amount of almonds and add in the remainder as sunflower seeds.
|This is the consistency with just the 3 tablespoons water. A little crumbly.|
|With 1/2 cup water, the 'dough' holds together and is easier to mold into the baking sheet.|
