From Emma Christensen.
- 1 cup (about 10 whole) dates, pitted
- 1 cup almonds
- 1 cup dried cherries
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor. Pulse several times to combine the ingredients. Break up the dates if they have clumped together, then run continuously until a ball begins to form.
Transfer the ball to the counter and pat into an 8-by-8 inch square. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate until firm. Cut into bars. Wrap each bar in wax paper or plastic. Store refrigerated for up to a week or frozen for up to three months. (Bars will still be chewy straight from the freezer.)
Makes 8 large bars.
