Raw Revolution Bar Recipe

I love Raw Revolution bars BUT...unless Farmer BT becomes a millionaire soon I needed to come up with a recipe.  Which btw sounds easy to find but in fact involves hours trying to find a recipe that actually has the ingredients listed not just someone coming up with random ingredients

 I use plain old plastic wrap and store them in the fridge. 

Raw Chocolate Cashew Bars

1/4 cup chopped dates  (can sub with raisins but will taste different)
1/4 cup cocoa
1/3 cup whole raw pecans, almonds or walnuts
1  Tbl  Raw Honey ( we don't use agave but you can)

I added:
2  Tbl Raw almond butter   (for protein)

Set out two pieces of plastic wrap for shaping and wrapping the bars. Tip:  wet the surface of your counter slightly and then put the wrap on it.  Like magic the wrap will stick to the counter and not to your fingers.   Do this first...just trust me!

Add the nuts to the processor and pulse until finely chopped.  Remove to a bowl you'll add them in back in a minute.

Place the dates, cocoa and the honey in the food processor. If using nut butter you'd add it at this point. Pulse until processed to a gooey paste ball.  (Tip:  use a smaller processor...this doesn't seem to work as well with a bigger processor.)  Now transfer to the bowl with the nuts and your fingers to knead the nuts into the paste.

Divide mixture in half or quarters if you want 100 calorie bars. Place each half (or quarter) on each of  the sheets of plastic wrap. Start to mold into a bar shape.   Get them into the basic bar shape then tightly wrap the plastic around each bar and press them against the counter to get a more "perfect" bar shape. Now just store in the refrigerator. Makes 2 bars or 4 100 cal bars.
