Use this recipe to turn common pantry staples into a quick, tasty snack.
In a food processor or blender, put in dried fruit, nut butter, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and raw nuts or seeds. Blend them for a few minutes until you get a paste-consistency.
Add rolled oats (and cocoa powder) and blend for another 1 minute. If the consistency is still too wet, feel free to add more rolled oatmeal 2 tbsp at a time.
Once the batter comes to the desired consistency (like cookie dough), empty out the batter into a separate bowl and form into balls or squares.
Place leftovers in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days or in the freezer for 3-4 months!
To make this recipe without a food processor or a blender, substitute the dried fruit or dates with applesauce or honey and mix with a spatula.
