Ingredients

  • 1 cup Medjool dates approx 11-12
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup almonds I used dry roasted & unsalted
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts
  • 2 tbsp honey

Instructions

  • If your dates still have their pits, be sure to remove them!
  • Pulse dates and almonds in food processor until chopped medium fine.
  • Add cranberries, chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp hearts, and honey. Pulse 6 to 8 times or until ingredients are well blended.
  • Line an 8×8 dish with plastic wrap or parchment paper.
  • Place ingredients into dish and spread evenly while pressing down firmly to form a flat even top.
  • You may need to wet the back of your spatula or use parchment paper to press down as the mixture may be sticky.
  • Refrigerate 1-2 hours before cutting to get cleaner cuts. Once cut, I wrapped each of mine individually so they were ready to grab and take with me for a great energy snack!
  • Store in an airtight container up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
