Total: 1 hour, 40 minutes
Prep: 40 minutes
Serves: 16


  • 1 cup packed pitted, soft dates
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup natural, unsweetened raw nut or seed butter (e.g., peanut, cashew, or sunflower)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 2/3 cups old-fashioned or quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup dried goji berries, dried cherries, or dried cranberries, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, chopped
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened flake or shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds or poppy seeds
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal


  1. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with foil or parchment paper and grease the pan with coconut oil or vegetable oil.
  2. 2. Combine the dates and warm water in a small bowl. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes until fruit is soft (time will vary according to the dryness of the dates). Drain and pat dry with paper towels.
  3. 3. Place the dates, nut or seed butter, and cardamom in a food processor and process until the mixture forms a thick paste; transfer to a large mixing bowl.

Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. Place a large piece of parchment paper, wax paper, or plastic wrap (lightly greased with coconut or vegetable oil) atop the bar mixture and use it to spread and flatten the mixture evenly in the pan; leave the paper or plastic wrap to cover. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  5. 6. Using the liner, lift the mixture from the pan and transfer to a cutting board.
