So, with inspiration from both Leslie and this post by the Fat Free Vegan, I’ve made something great with my locally-grown organic Medjool Dates. I used Leslie’s base recipe for her bars of: dates, honey (she uses agave nectar) and oatmeal. For the first batch, I just mashed together the base recipe ingredients (no blender or food processor needed-yay!), formed the ingredients into balls, and then rolled them in coconut. For the second batch, I added raw sunflower seeds and almond butter to the base recipe mixture. Oh boy!! These were so awesome! They were a perfect snack to take over to Matt’s brother’s house tonight for some Nip/Tuck watching (we don’ have a TV).
The reason the Lara Bars are in the picture is because they used to be my favorite snack…until I made these. Don’t get me wrong, Lara Bars are great…but these are much more fresh tasting (Matt agrees) and a lot cheaper!
Bonus: Dates are a good source of fiber and potassium. Woo-hoo!
