DIY (Damn it's Yummy) Fruit, Nut + Seed Bars
Serves: makes about 12 bars, depending on how you cut them
  • 1 cup almonds
  • ½ cup hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • ¼ cup freshly ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp maca powder (optional superfood)
  • dash of sea salt
  • 12-14 Medjool dates
  • ½ cup of mulberries, raisins, apricots, figs or another dried fruit
  1. Place all of the ingredients into a large food processor and blend until combined. To test if they have blended long enough, simply scoop a portion of the mixture into your hand. Tightly squeeze the mix, and if it holds together it is done. If it falls apart you’ll need to blend longer, and/or add a couple more dates or other dried fruit.
  2. Line a brownie baking pan (9x9”) with parchment paper and pour the mixture into the middle. Firmly press the mixture down into the pan to completely cover it. Place the pan in the refrigerator for an hour to firm (I usually cut myself a bar before the rest firm in the fridge.) Remove the mixture from the pan and cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator layered between pieces of parchment or wax paper to prevent sticking. These will stay fresh for at least one month.
