Chocolate Cherry Goji Bars

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cups raw walnuts

  • 1/2 cup dried Navitas Naturals Goji Berries

Directions: 

  • In a food processor combine walnuts and almonds, and process into the size of small gravel.
  • Add dates, goji berries, vanilla extract, and cinnamon powder, and process until the mixture forms clumps and begins to stick together.
  • Add cherries and cacao nibs and process briefly to incorporate the ingredients, but leave some small chunks for texture.
  • Place the dough on a large sheet of plastic wrap on a cutting board.
  • Press dough into a compact rectangle, then wrap it tightly in the plastic, compacting it even more. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a 1/2 -inch-thick layer.
  • Unwrap dough and cut into bars or bites as desired.
  • Energy bars will last several weeks unrefrigerated and covered, or keep them in the freezer for long-term storage.
