Ive always wanted to buy dates and I recently picked some up. I decided to make an energy type bar with various nuts. The turned out delicious and energy-filled!
1/2 cup almonds
1/8 cup or more cashews
1/4 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips
1 1/2 cup dates(pitted)
1 tbsp peanut butter
put almonds and cashews in the food processor till finely chopped. add chocolate chips and blend till combined. put this mixture aside. Pulse dates by them selves till it forms a paste. and nut mixture and peanut butter and pulse till combined. pour mixture into small pan covered in parchment. let chill at least two hours before cutting. enjoy! makes 8 small squares.
