Stepf's Homemade Energy Bars--Pecan Pie FlavorSubmitted by: SP_STEPF
IntroductionThese bars are tasty and easy to make. They are "raw" energy bars, similar to a Lara Bar. With a taste that is reminiscent of pecan pie, these are a perfect snack before or after a workout. Let kids help roll the bars. These bars are tasty and easy to make.

1/2 c almonds
1/2 c pecans
1 1/2 c pitted dates
Place dates in food processor (no need to wash it after the nuts) and pulse several times. Once dates are chopped, allow to process until dates form a large ball. Remove from processor and place in bowl with nuts. Use your hands or a sturdy wooden spoon to mix the nuts into the dates. Divide mixture in half, then in half again in the bowl. Divide the quarters into three bars each. (This method sounds confusing, but it ensures even-sized bars. It should make 12 bars.)
Roll the bars between your hands and then wrap each one in plastic wrap. Refrigerate up to one week.
Your hands will be sticky, so it helps to have the plastic wrap spread out ahead of time or to have someone there to help you wrap them.
Enjoy as a snack any time of day.

I'd like to know that too - can you freeze these? No one else in my home would eat these so how fresh can they be 12 days later? - 1/5/12

You can freeze them, and they stay fresh (in the fridge) for a couple of weeks.
