I came across a really neat recipe for snack bars. Today I made some of these with dates and crispy pecans. For those not familiar with Nourishing Traditions, crispy nuts are basically just nuts soaked in brine for 12-24 hours and then dehydrated till crispy. Not only are they more digestible, they taste significantly better. The pecans taste very buttery.
I basically just threw everything in the blender till fine. Then I dumped it out in a bowl and “kneaded” it till it was a somewhat uniform mass. Then I rolled it out and sliced it into bars. I used a 3/1 ratio of nuts to dates. Then I refrigerated them.
One of my kids liked it and the other didn’t really care for it. I liked it, but I think I’ll try some other variations with different fruits and dry ingredients.
