“The on-the-go, travel-light snack bar. Derived from a famous raw food bar and the ultimate in 'foodie!' This is a great snack for the active lifestyle and impressive to hand out to others. As an outdoor professional I take these in the back country and they need not be refrigerated and give great energy. Cut into bars and enjoy or wrap individually for on the go.” - by lacy

"These were very easy to make and they taste delicious. They are also very versatile so you won't get tired of the same flavor over and over again. They remind me of Larabars. I will use their flavors ..." See moreas ideas to make my own versions at home. I used raw whole almonds and pecans instead of cashews. I did add the coconut oil because it's good for you, but it doesn't need it hold together. The oil from the nuts is more than enough. Also, the dates make it sticky. The key here is to let the food processor go on(times will vary depending on the power of your processor) until the ingredients come together and form a ball. If you don't process the ingredients long enough, your mix might not stick together. Next time, I will skip the coconut oil because it made it a bit too greasy for me. Also, I might add unsweetened dried cherries or other fruits. Update: DO NOT add the oil. Even without the oil, the bars are oily/sticky enough. I made them again but folded in some dark chocolate mini chips and some chopped pecans to give it texture. Wow! Excellent. I'll add in some chopped almonds and some chopped dried cranberries or cherries next. Another idea would be dried apples and cinnamon...with or without raisins... Macadamias and white chocolate (though white chocolate isn't healthy, just add a bit)... Dried pineapples and mangoes... The possibilities are endless!!"
"I make a similar recipe using choc. chips instead of coconut to give it a little sweetness - the end result tastes just like cookie dough! Delicious and healthy snack when you`re on the run...." See more"
"All I can say is "WOW!" I made these for my mother-in-law's birthday since she was on a cleanse and could not eat any allergens whatsoever. They were gone as soon as I unveiled them. Even the kids, ag..." See morees 2-7, ate more than one each! What a great recipe for a delicious, healthy, nutritious desert or snack that is so easy to make. Will most definitely make over and over again. Thank you very much for sharing!"
