Raw Bar

Raw Bar

2 cup of nuts (almonds / cashews / walnuts / pecans)
1 cup of (unsweetened) coconut
1 - 1 1/2 cup of Medjool dates (with pits removed!)
1 cup of dried apricots
1/2 - 1 cup of dried berries (cherries, cranberries or goji berries)
1/2 - 1 cup of seeds (sesame / sunflower / pumpkin)

Optional ingredients for flavor variations: Lemon zest, cinnamon, vanilla, peppermint extract, Organic cocoa powder, ginger, carob.

Proportions do matter! Too much of the dry ingredients and the bars easily crumble.

Process the nuts, seeds and coconut together. Add to a bowl.

Process dates and dried fruit until puréed.

Add the puréed fruit to the nuts/seeds and mix well. It should be a sticky mess.

Line a casserole dish with plastic wrap and press the mixture into a casserole dish, and place in the refrigerator. After a couple of hours, I cut the bars up, put them into snack baggies to store back in the refrigerator. They should keep for a week (if they don't get eaten before then).
