Ingredients

  • 24-26 Medjool dates
  • 1/2 C creamy, no salt added peanut butter, warmed
  • 1 TBS vanilla
  • 2 C whole rolled oats, divided
  • 1 C raw cashews, chopped
  • 1/2 C dried cherries
  • 1/4 C dried blueberries
  • 1/4 C goji berries
  • 1/4 C pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 C coconut, dried, shredded and unsweetened
  • 2 TBS ground flaxseed
  • 2 TBS hemp seed
  • 1 TBS chia seed
  • 1.5 TBS allspice
  • Directions

    Preheat oven to 325 and line a jellyroll pan with parchment paper.

    Place the dates in a bowl of hot water for about 20 minutes and then pit them.  Drain the bowl and transfer the dates to a food processor.  Mix until a paste forms.  You'll have to add a little warm water to get it moving; do this as the food processor is working. While you are creating the paste, warm the peanut butter in the microwave or stove top, just until it is easy to stir, but not too hot.  Add this into the food processor as it is still in motion.  Next, add in the vanilla.  Stop and add in 1 cup of oats and pulse until integrated. 

    Scoop out the mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well with your hands.  Adjust to taste.  Pick off about a 2" piece and roll into a ball.  Place the ball on to the jellyroll pan and repeat until finished.  Bake for 20 minutes and allow to cool completely.  Store in a sealed container.
