These bars are not cooked.  They are kept in the freezer until the day I need them.  I modified the original recipe from the March 2009 issue of Outside magazine.  These are just a bit cheaper than the commercial products,  have no additives, and taste really good.

1 and 1/2 pounds chopped dates

3  Tbsp. maple syrup

1 tsp. vanilla

2 tsp Grand Marnier

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/2 c dried cranberries, raisins

1/4 c chopped pecans, 1/4 c chopped walnuts

1/2 c home made granola

1.  Chop up dates, combine with maple syrup, vanilla, Grand Marnier, salt, spices. Stir in the rest.

2. Sandwiched between parchment paper, roll out mixture until uniform 1/2 inch thick.

3. Chill in freezer for 15 minutes, then cut into bars
