Preheat oven to 200°F. Combine ingredients in blender or food processor; pulse on and off until raisins and nuts are finely chopped but not puréed (mixture should not be sticky). Press mixture evenly and firmly on a parchment lined 25 x 16 inch baking sheet and cut crosswise into 8, 12 x 4-inch rectangles, then cut bars each 4 x 1- inch wide. Separate slightly to cook evenly and bake for 1 hour; let cool and wrap individually.
