These bars have become a part of my current breakfast routine (in addition to at least two pieces of fresh fruit, and a big bottle of water), as I run out the door every morning in an attempt to make it to work on time, as well as fully nourished and energized until the next meal. Once you make a batch of these buggers you'll be happy you did, and so will your taste buds.
Blueberry Walnut Date Bars
1 C Medjool Dates (pitted and soaked in warm water for 5 minutes)
1 C dried Blueberries (can sub with any other dried fruit)
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 C Walnuts (or Pecans)
1 C Cashews
1 tsp Vanilla
Pinch of Sea Salt
Place the above ingredients in food processor and chop. The Mixture will clump (because there is a lot of it!), as this happens turn mixture over in food processor and chop again. Repeat the following step 3 to 4 times until mixture is evenly mixed and chopped.
Remove mixture from processor and flatten into desired thickness. Cut into desired shape/size (you could have fun with this and use cookie cutters if you have kids).
*Dust/coat lightly with ground Golden Flaxeed (this keeps them from sticking together if you stack them), store in air tight container in the fridge.
Enjoy as in between meal snack, or pair with fresh fruit for a breakfast or lunch on the go!
