Marcona almonds are blanched and roasted--you won't need to toast them. You can also substitute regular whole almonds. For the best texture, use whole pitted dates, not chopped; you need the sticky texture of the whole fruit.

How to Make It

Place first 6 ingredients in the bowl of a food processor; process until finely chopped. Add cereal; pulse to combine. Press date mixture into bottom of an 8-inch square glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cut into 12 pieces.

Excellent! These bars were delicious. Followed recipe to the letter except I used regular whole unsalted almonds rather than the Marcona almonds. Will make this again and again!

They came out a little crumbly for me, but I refrigerated them and that solved the problem. Flavor was delicious!
