Ingredients
  

  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 6 large medjool dates, seeds removed and roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/ 4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries

Instructions
 

  • Pulse Oats, seeds, and nuts in a food processor until then are all a coarse meal. Add in chopped dates, then honey, then vanilla and salt. Pulse until the ingredients form a ball or until you can pinch the ingredients and they clump together easily. If it is too wet add more oats, or if it is too dry add more dates or honey. Add in the dried cherries with just a few pulses so they are still chunky in the bites. 
  • Roll the bites by the heaping teaspoonful. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. These will also be fine in your purse or a travel bag and are a great snack for skiing or hiking.
