Cacao Date Bars Recipe

I found this original recipe here: Chocolate-Date Squares.
I changed very little. I used Deglet Noor dates as I was out of Medjools. They are a slightly smaller date, so I used 12. I also added a couple of pine nuts to top each bar.
My mini cuisinart was too small for all of the ingredients. Since I really didn't want to use the big one, I just used my blender to mix all of the ingredients.
I used a loaf pan to freeze it.
 Pine nuts are not pictured.
 Pine nuts were added before freezing.
 Wrapped in parchment paper and ready to add to my travel lunches.
This recipe made 6 bars. Each bar was about 1.5x4x.5 inches.
