Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Shelled pecans
  • 1 Cup Shelled almonds
  • 1 Cup Pitted and quartered dates
  • 1/2 Cup Rolled oats
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Flaxseed
  • 2 Tablespoons Chia seed
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla extract
  • 2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Agave syrup
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roast nuts on a cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes until fragrant. Don’t let them burn. Remove nuts from oven and reduce heat to 325 degrees.

    Place nuts, flour, and seeds in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped, leaving at least 1/4 inch pieces. Add dates and pulse again to combine.  Add remaining ingredients and pulse just until combined. You will have a chunky paste with small pieces of nut visible. 

    Spread into an 8x8 baking dish and bake 25 minutes. 

    Let cool and cut into 2” bars. Store in a sealed container on the counter or refrigerate for longer storage.
