Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • Dry Ingredients:
  • ½ cup hazelnut
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup buckwheat
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup pinenuts
  • ¼ cup hulled hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup bee pollen
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • pinch salt
  • Wet Ingredients:
  • zest of ½ orange
  • ¼ cup mulberries
  • ½ cup prunes
  • 1+ ½ cup dates, soaked
  • 4 - 5 tbsp coconut oil, melted
Instructions
  1. In a food processor combine the oats, nuts, dates and prunes. Process until the dough is sticky and the pieces of nuts and fruits are all the similar sized pieces. Add coconut oil and process to combine.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and pulse just until combined. Be careful not to over process at this point.
  3. Spread the mixture into parchment lined baking pan. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Cut into bars and wrap individually, store in the fridge up to 1 week.
Notes
Mixture should stick together like dough when pressed. If the mixture is falling apart, add more sweetener - this is what hold it all together. You can use raw honey (if you not vegan), coconut nectar, nut butter, dates, date paste or a combination of these. Dates naturally sweet, which makes them perfect for a bar. If your dates aren’t sticky and moist, soak them in warm water for a few minutes them drain thoroughly. Nut butter makes them taste like cookies. You can substitute any dried fruit or switch any of the nuts. It's a great way to use up odd amounts of dried fruits and nuts as long as the bars stick together, you are good.
