Cuisine: American
Servings: 1 quart jar filled

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 1 1/4 cup raw almonds
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 10 medjool dates, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2-3 drops almond extract, optional
  • 3-4 tablespoons honey, or agave for vegan

Instructions

  • In a food processor, grind up the oats and nuts until they are a flour-like powder. Add in the seeds, dates, 1/3 cup of the blueberries, salt, and almond extract (if using).  Pulse until well incorporated.  Add honey until a ball forms (should be 3-4 tablespoons worth). Taste and adjust sweetness or saltiness to your preference.  Add in remaining dried blueberries and pulse just a few times to incorporate but still leave a few large chunks of blueberries throughout. 
  • Roll into balls, or press into silicone mini muffin pan and refrigerate until hard then pop out. Store in an air tight container in the fridge.
