I have tried, and failed before, so I was not optimistic when I set out last week.
I did the same thing as before, chopping up slivered almonds, dates and a few pieces of chocolate in the food processor.
Then I added a smidge of honey and some water. This is where it gets not-so-fabulous to look at.
I realized I might have more success making mini-muffins rather than bars, so I scooped my mix into a mini muffin pan and popped it in the oven at 300 for 10 minutes to let it bake/dry out.
Success! Delicious, easy, and a nice small size for packing in my daughter's no waste lunches.
