Yum! I love Larabars, but they can get a bit pricy. This recipe looks delicious :)

But dates are really expensive, too! :-(

Yes they can get pricy, thanks!

Looks really good, I'm definitely gonna try these the next time I do a family camping trip. Have you done any testing with the recipe to see how it holds up to long term storage?

I reckon it depends on the chocolate (cheaper tends to be less melty more preservatives) and how well you kept it clean before sealing. to test this make a large amount of small bars and seal then open one every few days. week. month(if the product shows no sign of deterioration ) and test using good old human senses. So that the estimated use by date can be guessed!

I understand that the freezing step is to firm them up for cutting, but is there any refrigeration required to preserve them? I'm not familiar with dates so I don't know how long they keep

BenjiDaa (author)Creak2015-02-02

No, they don't require refrigeration. The chocolate could get melty though. Dates are good for a long time.

Then you're lucky, because it is made with chocolate chips! No raisons here...

Nuts + dates + chocolate = great combo!

BenjiDaa (author)B Takes a Bite2015-02-02

Yes, it is a great combo!
