Meatless Monday - Quickie: Cashew Date Bar

A while back I did a Larabar tasting with my kids, and after looking at the ingredients Tazer said, "Hey, we could make these!"  So for his first attempt, he tried a cashew/date mix - with great results!  Very simple ingredients - 1/3 c. dates (whole) and 1/2 c. cashews.  Using our hand blender (probably would be easier in a food processor), he chopped the dates and then the cashews.  Next he mixed the two together with his hands.






Then formed them into bars on wax paper.




And then we tasted :)


Tazer:  "delicious and easy to make!"
Gaigai:  "I love them!  They look kind of dry, but when I ate it, it was soft and moist."
Little A bomb:  no comment, just the more sign :)
Munchkin:  "kind of sweet...are there any chocolate ones?"


You can probably guess what will be in the next bars we make!


Happy Monday!
