Stepf's Homemade Energy Bars--Pecan Pie Flavor

Submitted by: STEPFANIER

Introduction

These 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. They are "raw" energy bars, similar to a Lara Bar.

Ingredients

    1/2 c almonds
    1/2 c pecans
    1 1/2 c pitted dates

Directions

Place almonds in food processor and pulse several times until roughly chopped. Add pecans and continue to pulse until nuts are finely chopped. Remove and place in medium bowl.
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.

  • Amazing! Quick and easy to make and keep in the fridge to grab and run to help avoid temptation.......also delicious...I added just a little bit of unsweetened dried coconut I happened to have - you could probably adjust what you add too - 12/29/12
