Ingredients

  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups dates
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins

Instructions

  • Combine ingredients: Add oats, almonds, walnuts, pepitas, coconut, sunflower seeds, maple/honey, sesame seeds, coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon and sea salt in a large mixing bowl. Toss to combine.
  • Process dried fruit: Add dried fruit to a food processor with the chopping blade and process until the mixture is completely chopped and forms into a big, sticky ball.
  • Add dried fruit: Pull the dried fruit from the processor and break into small pieces. Add it to the bowl with the oat mixture and use a plastic spatula or your hands to combine everything together.
  • Form bites: Once combined, form bites into small cookie shaped pucks (or roll into balls). Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment.
  • Enjoy: Enjoy right away or store in the fridge for later. Will last 1-2 weeks in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer.

Notes

  • Dried fruit – Feel free to use any assortment of dried fruit. I bet dried cranberries, apricots, fig and/or prunes would work great.
  • NutsYou can experiment with other types of nuts like pecans, cashews or pistachios. 
  • SeedsFeel free to use whatever combination of seeds you have on hand. 
  • Nut-free – If you need a nut-free option you can easily swap the nuts for more seeds.
