Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 cup raisins juicy flame raisins work great
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp natural vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon optional
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

Instructions
 

  • Add the walnuts and the seeds together into a food processor or spice grinder. Pulse for a couple of minutes until you have a fine meal texture. The consistency should look like breadcrumbs. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  • In your food processor, add the fruit and process. The fruit should be broken down and will even form a sort of dough ball.
  • Transfer to the mixing bowl and add the vanilla extract and cinnamon (if using). The vanilla will add some moisture to the mixture and help to bring it together.
  • Mix with a wooden spoon or your hands if you find it easier.
  • Once the mixture is fully combined you can press the mixture into a loaf tin.
  • Pack down and sprinkle over sesame seeds to finish.
  • Chill in refrigerator for four hours until set.
  • Cut into bars and serve.

Notes

Adding the cinnamon spice will add a rich, festive flavour to these bars. But they are super tasty without it if you wish to omit.
These bars will last for up to a week in the refrigerator. Store them in an airtight container to keep them fresh.
