In the video you can see I processed all the ingredients together, but for better results, I would suggest processing only the dates first and then all the ingredients together.
Loved this recipe! By any chance, do you know what the Nutrition Facts are for these bars? Thanks!Reply
I made these Homemade No-Bake Energy Bars, placed them in the refrigerator for about 3-hours. After slicing them into bars they fell apart, like there was nothing holding them together, however they were very tasty. I processed the dates by them self before adding all the other ingredients. While I was processing the dates, I noticed they were fairly dry and not very sticky. I completed the recipe and they just fell apart while cutting them into bars. Did I use the wrong type of Dates??Reply
