Description

These No-Bake Cinnamon Apple Date Bars are naturally sweetened with dates and take just a few minutes to prepare – without heating up the oven!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/2 cup unsalted cashews
  • 1 1/2 cups pitted Medjool Dates
  • 1 cup unsweetened dried sliced apples, packed (I used dried apple rings from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons water

Instructions

  1. Add walnuts and cashews to a food processor and pulse several times until the nuts are chopped into very small pieces.
  2. Add dates, apples, cinnamon and salt to the food processor, and continue to pulse for about 30 seconds until well mixed.
  3. Drizzle water around inside the food processor bowl. Pulse 2-3 times until the mixture becomes sticky, and holds together when squeezed in your hand.
  4. Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper, and dump the mixture into the dish. Use additional parchment paper or a large bottom glass to flatten the mixture out to all sides of the baking dish.
  5. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, then cut into 8 bars and enjoy. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, wrapped individually or in a sealed container.
