Ingredients You Need for Date-Cherry-Ginger-Orange-Coconut Bars [Vegan]

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup dates, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried tart cherries
  • 1/4 cup crystallized ginger
  • 1 cup dried, unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 2 tbsp. fresh orange juice
  • 1 tbsp. cacao nibs
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds

How to Prepare Date-Cherry-Ginger-Orange-Coconut Bars [Vegan]

  1. Line a 9″ x 9″ pan with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, finely grind the almonds.  Add the dates, cherries and ginger and process a few times just to break everything down.  Add the remaining ingredients and process until everything is in small bits.  If the mixture is not coming together, add a tablespoon or two of water.
  3. Dump the mixture into the prepared pan and gently spread and pat it out until it reaches all sides and is fairly even.  Place in the refrigerator for a few hours before slicing.  I wrap mine in parchment paper and store in the refrigerator.
