Roly Poly Raw Bars

Submitted by: BOMBSHELLRED

Introduction

So easy and a great replacement for candy. You can use any dried fruit and nuts, just twice as much fruit as nuts I think. I started added dry oatmeal to add body with lower calories and to soak up some of the stickiness. I really like this 3c fruit 1 c nuts 1 c oatmeal ratio. I will do two cups for the cherries next time, that flavor got lost with the dates. So easy and a great replacement for candy.

Ingredients

    One cup Dry roasted almonds
    One cup dry oatmeal
    2 cups Medjool dates pitted
    1 cup dried cherries.

    (I would do 2 cup cherries and only 1 cup dates next time.)

    You can add powdered cocoa, maybe half a cup or more depending on your taste to make chocolate cherry too. But you might not stop after one or two....hee hee hee.

    Kids LOVE to make these with you too, just keep their fingers out of the way.

Tips

You can use any fruit or nut. I was copying Lara bars and Pure bars here. SO CHEAP to make your own.


Directions

Put all items into food processor and whirl away on pulse until it clumps together. Unplug appliance and begin scooping out paste and shaping into 1 inch balls or bars whatever you like.

Serving Size: This makes about 31 1 inch balls.

Number of Servings: 31
