FAST AND FRUGAL!
(12 ENERGY BARS IN 15 MINUTES)
Only two ingredients:
4 oz Dates.
And 4 oz cashews.
Only three instructions:
Toast the cashews in a dry frying pan.
Process dates and cashews in food processor to a thick paste.
Shape into bars.
Scout your local health food megamart for a bar with the same two ingredients. You'll see that by making these yourself,wrapping them in waxed paper and popping them in your lunch bag, you've saved 50% on the store price!
Can you spare 15 minutes to make a dozen bars to save a ton? Thought so, which is why I've shared this basic recipe. I hope you experiment. They freeze and defrost nicely so no problem stashing away a range of combos. I'm thinking cranberries, or coconut, or figs....the possibilities are vast.
