The " Who Needs Clif Bars?" Bar

After reading Barbara Kingsolver's "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle," I began thinking more about how far my food (and all its ingredients!) had traveled to get to me. I worked out this energy-bar-like recipe as a way to use up the home-grown pecans that my folks in Texas keep mailing me (I'm not complaining!). It has the added benefit of being made with few ingredients, which can be substituted for locally-grown things, or things which are currently in season. I use things native to my home state of California-- feel free to adjust and play with some of your own local flavors! Added bonus-- no flour or dairy!
