Rated 5 out of 5 by Foxtop from Modified recipe but results are AWESOME I didn't have the recipe handy so went from memory so mine is a bit different, but the results are fabulous. I put in raw almonds first and blended them until well crunched up but not powdery fine. Then added raisins, dates (probably more dates than called for--I didn't measure), and semi-sweet chocolate bits. Blended on low with tamper until product came together well. Comes out of container easily. I formed portions into balls as shown and wrapped each so they'd be handy to grab and go. So delicious, it's hard to eat only one!
