EQUIPMENT YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE:

- 1 cup almonds or other nuts
- 1 cup dried cherries or other dried fruit
- 1 cup (12-15 whole) pitted dried dates
- Combine all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a few times just to mix things up. Separate the dates if they start to clump together.
- Process continuously for 30 seconds. Scrape the edges of the bowl and beneath the blade to make sure nothing is sticking.
- Process continuously until a ball is formed, 1-2 minutes. Continue processing for another 1-2 minutes, until the ingredients clump together and gather into a ball.
- Place the mixture in a bowl and cover and chill until firm enough to handle, about 30 minutes.
- On a piece of wax paper, roll or press the mixture out with your hands until it forms an 8x8 inch square.
- Wrap and chill for at least an hour, or overnight, before cutting into bars.
- Store the bars in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for up to three months. The bars can be eaten straight from the fridge or freezer and will be firm, but chewy. Room-temperature bars (kept in a lunch bag or backpack all day) will be softer but still delicious!
