  4. If the mixture is too wet, add 2 tablespoons of additional nuts at a time and process again until mixture is moist and holds together.
  5. Press mixture onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet forming a square about 9 x 9 inches (or roll them between your hands to form them into 16 balls). Place bars in the fridge to chill if they seem sticky.
  6. Cut into 12 bars. Wrap in parchment paper and store in a covered container in the fridge for up to 1 week or place in a freezer-friendly container and freeze for up to 2 months.
