2 cups dates (pitted)
3 tablespoons almond butter (or peanut butter)
4 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup oats
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
¼ cup chia seeds
1/2 cup sliced almonds
¾ cup dried cranberries (unsweetened)
In a food processor add dates, almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, salt and vanilla extract. Blend until combined and dates broken down, about 2 minutes.
To dates, add remainder of ingredients and blend until combined, about 1 to 2 minutes.
In a parchment lined dish (I used about 8" x 11" pan) add mixture and FIRMLY press down until packed into pan and level. Freeze until firm, about 40 to 45 minutes.
Remove from the freezer and cut into bars (I cut into 16 pieces, but you can do more or less, depending on the size you want). Store these homemade granola bars in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy within a week.
