homemade 'lara' bars

I love these little energy bars - they are a raw food bar that is just SO tasty! I love them and the kids love them - unfortunately, like a lot of really yummy health foods - they are on the PRICEY side at $1=1.50 each. 

So I decided to try my hand at making my own.  So far I have only tried one idea but the possibilities are endless:

1/2 cup whole pitted dates
1/2 cup raw nuts (I used Almonds)
1/2 cup dried unsweetened coconut
11/2 Tbsp cocoa powder

run all ingredients through a food processor until the dates and nuts are broken down and the mixture begins to stick together.  press into a small pan and cut into small squares.  store in the fridge in a covered container.
