Homemade Clif Nectar Lemon bars

Today I made a test batch of the lemon bars. The flavor is awesome. They aren't quite as firm as they should be. I was too impatient and took them out of the oven a few minutes too soon.

3/4 c. chopped nuts (mostly almonds and walnuts)
10 dried dates
juice and zest of half a lemon
1/2 t. vanilla
30 goji berries

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Put the nuts and dates in a food processor and blend until crumbly. Add zest, juice, and vanilla and pulse until incorporated. Press mixture into a 4 x 8 pan. Press goji berries evenly over top. Bake 20 minutes.

Yes, I had a small bite. I'm giving the rest to my son in the morning.

It's so hot today I'm thinking about a cold veggie salad for dinner tonight. I'm soaking some sundried tomatoes. I think I'll chop and steam some broccoli, then throw in the tomatoes and a can of chickpeas. And probably just some cold Italian dressing and fresh parsley over the top.
