Easy No-Bake Granola Bars

What you will need:
1.                 Pitted dates
2.                 A powerful food processor
3.                 Desired ingredients (ideas include gf oats, nuts, dried fruit, cherries, raisins, etc.).
The base of this energy bar is pitted dates, which provide for the “chewy” nature of these bars. Use roughly two cups of pitted dates, and remember that while they can be refrigerated for later consumption, they will eventually get hard and spoil.  Put the pitted dates in a food processor and blend until they start to stick. Add in remaining ingredients and pulse until well mixed. Next, press the mass onto a baking pan lined with wax paper. Allow them to chill for an hour. Finally, cut the sheet into squares and store in separate bags for easy portability and snacking.
