Cranberry, Almond, Fruit & Nut Bar

Monday, January 20, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily! Some of you have requested gluten free recipes and so I am here to fulfill your requests! This one is a really yummy fruit and nut bar that I know you will enjoy! Take a peek at this!

Note: Gluten Free!


2.3 oz pitted dates
2 oz whole natural almonds
2 Tbsps almond meal
1/2 Tbsp almond butter
1/4 cup craisins


Combine all ingredients in a food processor.
Pulse ingredients until chopped and well blended (a "dough" ball will start to form).
Empty the contents of the food processor onto a sheet of wax or parchment paper.
Using your hands, press together the "dough" and shape it into a ball.
Roll the ball into a log and cut into 4 equal pieces.
Form each piece into a bar or whatever other shape you like.
Note: if you want the bars to have more almond and cranberry chunks, reserve 1/4 cup of the almonds and all of the craisins when blending the ingredients. Once all the other ingredients are well combined, add these to the food processor. Pulse until your desired consistency is reached. Enjoy!

Note: These bars are great for breakfast or when you are hungry and want something quick and healthy! Have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon
