3 cups nuts (such as: walnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, or pecans)
1/4 tsp seal salt
1 cup pitted Medijool dates, packed (If you use a dryer date, simple soak them in warm water for 20 min.)
1 T alcohol-free vanilla extract
1 to 2 T maple syrup, honey or rice syrup
Place nuts and salt in food processor and break down nuts into chunks. Add pieces of dates and vanilla. Process until the nuts bind together with the sticky dates to form batter.
Test the batter by grabbing a handful and squeezing to make sire it holds together. If it is not sticky enough, add a few more dates, or 1 to 2 T (syrup or honey) till it holds together.
