Fruit and Nut Chews - raw recipe


  • 1/3 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup dates, pitted
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups regular rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apples


  1. Warm honey slightly until the consistency of syrup. In a food processor, pulse honey, dates, cinnamon, and oats until oats are coarsely chopped.
  1. Scrape oat mixture into a medium bowl. Break up any clumps of dates and, if needed, chop any large date chunks. Stir in nuts, cranberries, and apples. Squeeze mixture into a ball. Line baking sheet with foil and oil foil. Using damp hands, firmly pat mixture onto foil into a compact 6- by 12-in. rectangle.
  1. Freeze until rectangle is firm enough to cut, about 20 minutes. Lift rectangle from foil to a work surface and cut into 16 bars. Wrap bars individually. They get moister and chewier after standing at least a day.
  1. Make ahead: Up to 1 week, chilled, or 1 month, frozen; for transport, pack in containers to protect them.
  1. Note: Nutritional analysis is per bar.
