Hey there. I have been working on refineing my energy bar recipe for the last few days. Thus far it looks like this: -10 large soft dates, pitted, chopped up -couple cups of organic peanut butter (haven't nailed down the exact amount I need to use yet) -maple syrup as much as you like (also trying with honey instead of syrup) dump all that in a double boiler, and mix it up over medium heat until the consistency is smooth. then you have your dry ingredients: -one cup shelled pistachios, chopped up -cup of other nuts and seeds like almonds, sunflower seeds, etc -cup of dried fruit (cranberry, blueberry, apricot, candied ginger), chopped as necessary -cup of hemp hearts They are super tasty and filling and filled with energy. Basically they meet all the goals I set for them. The only other thing I would like for them to do is to be able to exist at room temperature without turning into a gooey mess. Perhaps dip them in something? I'm not sure. I would also like the keep the overall theme of 'healthiness' going, so that kinda eliminates all the options I had thought of that are easy (the ways the store bought energy bars are).
