Very tasty. Without a photo by lacy, the recipe submitter, and limited guidance (“pulse until mixture is thick and sticks together”), it’s hard to know how fine or coarse a texture she intended these bars to have. In preparing this review, a photo by lacy was found in her member photo gallery which gives a good representation as to size if recipe is followed. Making the recipe exactly as written and after processing the ingredients, the uncut square was no larger than half the size of the square shown in a 2/21/13 photo by LatinaCook. Given this 4 servings recipe, the unprocessed nuts and coconut equal about 1 cup for 4 servings, and after processing, about 1/8 cup of processed mixture + 2-1/2 dates per serving. For those with a Vitamix blender, the combined ingredients do not form enough mixture to work with as it sticks to the side of the blender, barely above the blade, and the tamper tool can’t reach it. Next time making these, I’ll at least double the recipe as that would probably provide a sufficient amount of mixture to process with a Vitamix or to justify the time involved in cleaning the food processor. I’ll also eliminate the coconut oil as the nuts and oil deliver a lot of fat for a relatively small sized bar.
