Ingredients

  • 8 oz pitted dates
  • 4 oz dried apricots
  • 1 oz crystallized ginger
  • Zest from 1 small orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup pepitas
  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Instructions

  • Line an 8”x8” pan with parchment paper to cover the bottom and all 4 sides.
  • Combine the dates, apricots, ginger, orange zest and salt in the food processor fitted with the metal blade and process until a thick paste forms, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  • Add the pepitas to a large skillet and toast over medium heat for 1 ½ minutes, tossing occasionally with a wooden spoon.
  • Add the sunflower seeds to the pan and toast together with the pepitas for another 5 minutes, stirring with the wooden spoon.
  • Add coconut flake, chia seeds, flaxseed, and sesame seeds to the pan and toast for another 3 minutes, continue stirring the mixture with a wooden spoon. The mixture should be fragrant and lightly browned.
  • Add the toasted seed mixture to the date mixture in the food processor and pulse until desired consistency is achieved.
  • Scrape the mixture into the prepared lined pan, press into an even layer. Refrigerate for at least 2 hour or overnight.
  • Lift the parchment paper from the pan to remove the date bar, cut into 12 bars. Wrap each bar in plastic and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
