Cashew Cookie Bars - Larabar copycat

I tried making my own Cherry Pie Larabars a while back which turned out great.  I saw this copy cat recipe of another Larabar flavor - Cashew Cookie.  I've never tried the real one, but I have to say this was pretty good.  I still like the tart flavors of the Cherry Pie one better, but these were so easy to make and were a nice snack when you want something sweet.

Cashew Cookie Bars - Larabar copycat
From: Edible Sound Bites
Prep Time: 10 min
Makes: 8 small bars

1 cup raw unsalted cashews (or you can use sunflower seeds)
10 medjool dates, pitted (or 1 cup of regular dates)
pinch of sea salt

1. Pulse Cashews in your food processor until finely chopped.  Empty the nuts into a bowl.

2. Place the dates into the food processor and grind until roughly chopped into small pieces.

3. Add the cashews back into the food processor with the dates, add a pinch of sea salt and pulse until well combined (if using regular dates and the mixture isn't holding together add 1-2 Tbsp warm water)

4. Form into bars and store in air tight container and refrigerate.
