Don't overpay for these popular energy bars! Make them at home with just a handful of ingredients!
I was so excited about these bars that I made a second batch. I bought a can of pitted dates from Target (I don't remember the brand), but that batch turned out horrendously because the dates were too hard. Make sure that the dates you purchase are plump, juicy and soft. The second batch of dates broke my blender! The first batch of dates was Dole brand's resealable package from Kroger. The first batch of bars turned out wonderfully.
