Save my name, and I was wondering if I could eliminate the honey or substitute it with something that isn't quite as sweet? Or substitute some of the dates to make the recipe a little less sweet?Gave these my best shot! The dates i used were very determined not to blend! I broke my food processor and then decided to do the hot water thing with dates which worked. I blended them in my NutriNinja. The rest of the ingredients worked out fine but 19 grams of sugar is almost the whole day's safe reccommended amount of sugar (24g) in the diet! I wonder if there is any way to make these healthier?I didn't have dates for the newest batch this morning, homemade honey-sweetened dark chocolate coating the bottom instead of using chips. Wish me luck!Greetings from Germany (Bavaria).This recipe sounds amazing and I plan to try it! I have a question about the peanut butter though. There are now processed peanut butter products that use the term “natural” because they don't contain high fructose corn syrup. Is that the product you're referring to in the ingredients? Or are you referring to the freshly ground peanut butter that contains pretty much nothing but peanuts? Thanks!I'm from Malaysia. I have been purchasing commercial bar for my kids which are very expensive in this part of the world. I found your recipe and was amazed with the result after first try! They are so easy to make and my kids who do not like dates love them! They thought the black sticky stuff is chocolate!! Thank you so much for sharing! This is definitely a keeper for me.These are so great, almond butter and maple syrup and pulse a few times until combined and sticky.
I don't have a food processor but I cut all the dates up by hand and mixed by hand extra vigorously and it still turned into a nice smooshy mixture. Also, in order to be helpful I want to walk through all the steps in this recipe for you! Step 1: Mix wet ingredientsThank you!Unfortunately these did not work out for me. It might be because of all the substitutions I made due to my daughters allergies (nut allergies). I used sesame seed butter and fruit instead of nuts. They did not harden like a bar at all. Even when I left it in the fridge over night.I'm getting ready to try this recipe however I'm really looking for something that is just like Millville peanut butter energy bars my husband and I love them but don't love what's in them! They are a soft bar and it seems like the interior of the bar has more dates. They could be baked I have no idea… any thoughts?Love these! Super easy to make! I only had dried chopped dates on hand instead of the nice fresh sticky ones, but in the meantime it's a great bar for the whole family outside of school 🙂I used one mashed, cut into even rectangles.

5.Remove pan from oven and allow to cool completely (I like to place the pan in the freezer so the bars set quicker). Once cooled, Spread evenly and press down firmly using a flat spatula. Sprinkle remaining almonds and dried cranberries evenly. Press down firmly again with a spatula or your hands to flatten and bind together. Chill in the freezer for 1 hour or refrigerator for 3 hours or overnight to set.When I decided to start a blog over three years ago, Refrigerate the bars for the full hour so they become firm.Notes: The toasted pecans in the granola bars were my favorite. If you are going to use pecans don't skip the toasting step because it makes them amazing! I have bought dried tart cherries, melted
