Date Nut Bars
Recipe from Lisa Jaworski. Lisa says, “This family favorite recipe comes from my Great Grandmother Marie, who came here from Caserta, Italy in 1898 through Ellis Island. Don’t know where she got the recipe, but she was a wonderful chef trained by the nuns. We used to sneak these treats off the tray when we were kids. Well, at least we thought we were sneaking them, but my Mother probably knew all along.”

The date shakes are filling, delicious, and full of calories! This is a shake you eat more than you drink as the shake is very thick.
