Ingredients

  • Honey (enough for a binder)
  • 2 cups dates
  • 2 cups raisins
  • 2 cups nuts (peanuts, cashews, walnuts, etc.)

Directions

Grind together all ingredients except honey.
Add honey a little at a time, mixing well until moist enough to mold well and hold shape.
Pour into a pan until about 3/4 inch think, or mold directly into bars.
Refrigerate and cut off bars from the pan; wrap in aluminum foil.
Note: This was originally a cold climate trail food which was very high in fat (suet). The recipe substitutes honey instead of suet for a binder. However, suet can be substituted for a cold weather trip.
