I love granola nut bars but hate all the unknown ingredients, plus the extra sugar, so I set out to make a nutritious nut bar. Here’s the finished product.
1 Cup raw almonds
1 Cup raw cashews
1/2 Cup pitted dates
1 cup dried fruit such as cherries, apricots,cranberries (no sugar added)
1/4 cup blackberry paleo jam (recipe on blog)
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
Add nuts, dates, jam, vanilla ,and dry seasonings to food processor or high-speed blender, until mixture is sticky, add dried fruit, process for 20-30 seconds
Line loaf pan with wax paper, scrap mixture into pan and press firmly into the bottom.
Place in freezer for 30 minutes, remove and cut into squares. drizzle LOVE BEAN FUDGE, or gluten free melted chocolate on top of each square.
