  • Food processor


  • 1 cup pitted dates packed*
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 3/4 cup freeze dried apples measured before processing to powder**
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp water optional


  • Add almonds and pitted dates to the bowl of a food processor and process 10-15 seconds.
  • Scrape down sides and add ground freeze dried apples, walnuts, raisins and cinnamon to the bowl and continue to process until a fairly smooth consistency is reached. You should be able to pinch some together and have it holds it's shape. If it’s too dry, add 1/2-1 tbsp water and pulse another 5-10 seconds, then try the “pinch test” again.
  • Line an 8x8 pan with plastic wrap, then add mixture to pan and spread out evenly, pressing firmly with your fingers. Once mixture is evenly spread, use the back of a spatula to level the bars out, again pressing firmly. I like to add plastic wrap to the top of them and press down firmly to help smooth them out.
  • Refrigerate for 30-40 minutes then cut into 10 bars, wrap individually in plastic wrap so they’re ready to take on the go! Store in refrigerator for up to a week. Enjoy!


  • If not using Medjool dates, soak Deglet or other dates in water for 15 minute before using, then drain water. I often use Deglet dates because they're so affordable.
  • Measure 3/4 cup freeze dried apples BEFORE ground, then add them to Nutritbullet or ninja maker and process to a fine powder.
