Posted: Updated:
NORWALK -

Kira Pantschenko, a nutritionist from Westport, shares how to make energy bars in just five minutes.

INGREDIENTS

30 pitted Medjool dates

1.5 cups raw cashews

pinch salt

optional: homemade dairy-free chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

Place 30 pitted Medjool dates in a small food processor. Process until dates form a paste.

Next, add in raw cashews and pulse until the cashews are coarsely chopped and mixed in with your dates. You may need to stop and scrape the sides a few times. At this point, you are able to pulse in optional chocolate chips. Just make sure you don't over mix and crush the chocolate!

Use a spoon or ? oz ice cream scooper to make them into little bites.

Optional: Place in refrigerator to allow them to set for about 30 minutes.
