      super daddy bars

      basic ingredients
      1 1/2 to 3 cups of Grape Nuts cereal
      1 package of dates, figs, or prunes (8 to 12 oz, depending on brand)

      Optional Additions
      2 tsp grated lemon zest
      1 tsp cinammon or 1/2 tsp nutmeg
      1/4 cup brown sugar
      1/2 cup of raisins

      Put everything but the raisins in a food processor and process for 4
      minutes. Add the raisins and process for 1 more minute. Shape into whatever
      shape you want…

      I’ve heard that dinosaurs and Power Rangers are especially
      tasty. It’s a little sticky; they’re easier to shape if you dip your hands
      in water occasionally. They come out of the food processor a bit warm and
      soft; they firm up as they cool.

      I wrap them individually (plastic wrap,
      aluminum foil or waxed paper) so they don’t stick together and refrigerate them.

      All proportions are flexible. The consistency is determined by the
      fruit/cereal ratio: more fruit makes them chewier, more cereal makes them
      more crumbly. The prunes are stickiest, so they need more cereal (closer to
      3 cups); the dates need the least (closer to 1 1/2 cups).

      Figs are
      somewhere in the middle.

      Also, adding the raisins near the end leaves little raisin chunkies that
      offer a nice textural contrast. Other dried fruits (peaches, apricots, etc.)
      would probably be good too.

      They keep well for a week or so, although they get firmer as they get older.
