These were very easy to make and they taste delicious. They are also very versatile so you won't get tired of the same flavor over and over again. They remind me of Larabars. I will use their flavors as ideas to make my own versions at home. I used raw whole almonds and pecans instead of cashews. I did add the coconut oil because it's good for you, but it doesn't need it hold together. The oil from the nuts is more than enough. Also, the dates make it sticky. The key here is to let the food processor go on(times will vary depending on the power of your processor) until the ingredients come together and form a ball. If you don't process the ingredients long enough, your mix might not stick together. Next time, I will skip the coconut oil because it made it a bit too greasy for me. Also, I might add unsweetened dried cherries or other fruits. Update: DO NOT add the oil. Even without the oil, the bars are oily/sticky enough. I made them again but folded in some dark chocolate mini chips and some chopped pecans to give it texture. Wow! Excellent. I'll add in some chopped almonds and some chopped dried cranberries or cherries next. Another idea would be dried apples and cinnamon...with or without raisins... Macadamias and white chocolate (though white chocolate isn't healthy, just add a bit)... Dried pineapples and mangoes... The possibilities are endless!!
