A great way to get the fuel you need before a workout on the go! 

Makes approximately 6 bars.

 

Ingredients

·       10 dried dates

·       1 Cup raw almonds

·       ¼ Cup raisins

 

Preparation

1.     Pour the dried dates, raw almonds, and raisins into a food processor (make sure the lid is tight!)

2.     Process ingredients for about two minutes, or until they are chopped and mixed thoroughly. (The fruit should appear smooth, yet you'll still be able to see bits of nuts. The mixture will look like firm cookie dough.)

  • Tear off a large piece of plastic wrap and lay it on a flat surface. Place the fruit and nut mixture in the center of the plastic wrap. Pull up the plastic on either side and begin to press it together to form one large bar.

4.     Squeeze the mixture firmly together to be about a ¼ of an inch thick.

5.     Wrap the squeezed ingredients in the plastic wrap and place the bar flat in the freezer for an hour to harden slightly

  • Remove the large bar from the freezer, unwrap it, and place on cutting board – cut into six pieces

 

Cook's Tip

To get even shares of the bar, divide bar in half, and then cut each half into thirds, creating six bars total.
