Title:   Date and Walnut Bars
Category:   Dessert - Clean (Only natural/organic ingredients), Vegetarian
From:   Neal Barnard
1 1/4 c walnuts
1/2 lb. soft and moist pitted dates
4 to 5 T hot water- as needed
Directions:   Coarsely chop half the walnuts and very finely grind the rest. Process dates into a soft paste in a food processor, adding just enough hot water, one T at a time, to make a stiff but pliable mixture. Transfer to a bowl and work in the coarsely chopped walnuts with your hands. Lightly oil your hands so the paste does not stick. Take small lumps of paste and roll into 1-inch balls. Roll each ball in the finely ground walnuts. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
Makes:   about 30 balls
