  • 2 tbsp coconut butter or unrefined virgin organic coconut oil
  • 1-2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice

Method:
  1. Grease an 8 x 8-inch baking dish and line it with unbleached parchment paper.
  2. Add the cashews, flax seeds and dates to a food processor and blend until a homogenous mixture forms, about 1-2 minutes. Add the coconut butter, almond milk and vanilla and blend again until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Transfer date-nut mixture to a large mixing bowl and add in the oats, quinoa, almond meal, salt, dried cherries and chocolate chips. It will be super sticky! Use your hands to combine the mixture well.
  4. Press the mixture firmly into the baking dish. You can use a piece of plastic wrap to help even it out. Refrigerate, covered, for at least an hour or up to overnight. Speed up the firming process by placing pan in the freezer.
  5. Cut into bars and serve. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week or well-wrapped in the freezer for up to a month. These stay perfectly firm in a lunchbox for 5 hours.
     
Note: For a thicker bar, double the ingredients and press into an 11 x 8-inch pan.
