Almond/Cashew Date Energy Bars
2 1/4 cups dates
1/2 cup almonds
1/4 cup cashews
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Just chop the dates and toss them into the food processor. Place the
processed dates into a bowl. Next, toss the nuts into the food processor,
and give them a whirl. Add the nut pieces into the bowl with the dates. Add
any remaining ingredients and combine. (Tip: It helps to mix it together
with your hands.) If the mixture is too dry and won't stick together, try
adding more dates. Transfer the mixture onto a sheet of wax paper. Press
down into a large square or rectangular shape. Wrap up and cover with foil
or place into an air-tight container. Refrigerate until bar hardens. Cut
into individual portion sizes.

You can mix up the nuts to change the taste. Try almonds, walnuts, pecans
or cashews. Play around with nut butters, cinnamon and vanilla. Try adding
dried apricots, raisins or cranberries.
