Homeade bars-a healthy choice for a great sweet snack

I am C/P a post from local homeschooler Terrabeth. I made these the last time she and I were togehter and discussed them with Staci, another homeschooler.

I placed dates, coconut, desert honey, walnuts and oats in the food processor, let it mix together and them rolled up into littel balls. Awesome

So here is TB's post.

This vegan blog author gives the ratio of 1TB date to 3 TB other dry
ingredients like nuts, dried fruit, and spices, with a few specific
combinations and ratios to try:

You can see the Larabar product listings with ingredients at:
Below, since I was already typing them up for myself, I'm sharing the
ingredients lists from that link, in case any of you who are
interested would like to experiment with ratios, flavors, and textures
that taste good to you. If you haven't tried them already, I recommend
picking up a few Larabars at ONF, to see what you're aiming for and
which flavors you may like best.
