Just like an Eatmore Chocolate Bar without the chocolate. Halved the recipe and also used my food processor - one ingredient at a time then mixed all together in large bowl.
Oh boy, this is so good!!! Tastes great and easy to put together! I used the food processor cause I couldn't find my meat grinder and it worked just fine. I halved this recipe and when I went to get out the figs, they were actually dates! What to do? So I substituted dried apricots. I think the figs would be even better! Thanks so much for this recipe!
Great for biking trips (and hiking trips too)!! Borrowed a meat grinder and it went much faster than my food processor! I halved the recipe, and it still made ALOT!! Takes time to make these but really worth it, they are very tasty!
You are right - these do take a long time...but they are so worth it! I don't have a meat grinder, so I, too, used my food processor to grind ingredients one at a time and combine later. Next time, though, I think I will put a little of each ingredient in at once, since I had trouble getting my dates and raisins to unstick from each other and get friendly with the figs! Tip for future makers: make sure you have a bowl big enough for 8 lbs. of goo, or you will have to divide and conquer, which makes it harder to incorporate the dry stuff (seeds and nuts). These are yummy, though; I had never tried a date until today! And they are so much cheaper than energy bars and have fewer preservatives and additives. :)
