3 large dates
1/2 c white raisins
1 cup cashew nuts, soaked for 3-5 hours, then set out to dry (I didn't have enough so I added raw sunflower seeds to equal a cup.)
3/4 cup soaked pecans, soaked and dried
1/4 c maple syrup
1 1/3 cup oats
1 t vanilla
1 t butter (can omit this)
1 T raw honey or agave
Blend fruit and nuts in a food processor until chunks are small. Then add the rest and blend. Can make into cookies and freeze for later.
This is one you can eat with reckless abandon on the couch without feeling badly - that is until the dates kick in and you're spending quality time in the nearest bathroom.
