Makes 1 8x8 baking dish / 4 servings
Author: Molly Patrick of Clean Food Dirty Girl


  • 1 cup of dried fruit I used 1/2 cup cherries / 80 g and 1/2 cup raisins / 70 g
  • 1/2 cup dried, pitted dates 95 g
  • 1 1/4 cups rolled oats 120 g
  • 1 cup walnuts 100 g
  • 1 cup dried unsweetened coconut flakes or shreds 40 g
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseeds 20 g
  • 2 tablespoons creamy almond butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt (optional)


  • Place the dried fruit and the dates into your food processor and pulse a few times to chop everything up. Add the rest of the ingredients and process for a minute or so until everything is well combined.
  • Transfer the mixture into an 8-inch glass dish and firmly press the mixture into the dish so it’s packed down and even. Tip: Use a flat bottomed glass to help pack it firmly in place.
  • Cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Store in the fridge and cut pieces as you want to eat them, or cut them into small squares and store them already cut in a sealed container.


We also tested this recipe using 1/2 cup pecans + 1/2 cup shelled sunflower seeds in lieu of the walnuts and it was delicious!
