Energy Cubes

My dear, lovely readers I need your help!

While hiking at Starved Rock State Park recently, we stopped in at our favorite local shop, Foothills Organics.

We always like to peruse their unique offerings and baked goods to grab a special treat before heading home.

This time we grabbed two bags of "energy cubes" and a bag of homemade cookies.

We were told the energy cubes are raw and are made with seeds, nuts, and dried fruit.

I can decipher peanuts, cashews, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, and raisins. They are absolutely delicious and wonderful!!!

This is where your knowledge will help me, GREATLY.

I've tried googling some, but cannot find anything like this. I'm not familiar with raw foods, but would like to know more about these so I don't have to drive an hour and a half each way when I want a fix!

They are chewy, but only after you bite into them. Until then they hold their shape really well and are well-formed, but not sticky or sweet. What is being used to bind these together? If anybody has any knowledge with raw foods, or a recipe that is similiar to this, please share it with me (because one bag is already gone)! Thanks!

Gma has always used dates when she made stuff like to this hold them together. Kinda sweet, kinda sticky. Maybe dates?

You need to get Alisa over here to look at these. I have no idea, but they look great! Nut butter?

Okay, now that my comments finally are going through, check out this for a raw granola bar - maybe it will help?

Thanks, Biz!! The recipe you suggested uses ground flax and I was wondering if that's in there!
