Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Add the dates, oats, walnuts, hemp seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a food processor. Pulse several times and then process until a crumbly, sticky mixture is formed.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a large mixture bowl, add in the raisins and pepitas, and fold to incorporate.
  3. Line a 9×13” baking pan with parchment paper. Transfer the mixture to the pan, and use your hands to press down into the pan. You’ll only need about two-thirds of the pan, so push the mixture up against one side of the pan and work out from there, forming a ½-inch-thick bar. Note: if the mixture is sticking to your hands, wet them slightly to repel the stickiness of the dates.
  4. Transfer the pan to the freezer to set for 1 hour.
  5. Once set, remove the large bar from the pan by lifting up the parchment paper. Slice into squares and store in the fridge or freezer.
