8 pitted dates. (I like to soak my dates in warm water for a few minutes before blending.)
½ cup dried raisins or any other dried fruit
2 tbsp sunflower seeds
½ cup nuts of choice
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tsp ground flax
½ cup shredded coconut (I like to add this to the food processor first and blend till it’s pretty fine in consistency)
Blend and press into a parchment lined dish. I use a glass Pyrex dish that is 7”x5” but any size will work it will just make your final bars thicker or thinner. Take your time pressing the mixture into the dish. I used the back of a measuring cup to press and smooth the mixture.
The better you compress it the better they will hold together.
