1 cup dried tart cherries

¼ cup date pieces

1 cup hot water

1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Hazelnut Meal/Flour

¼ tsp ground cinnamon

¹⁄8 tsp salt

¹⁄8 tsp almond extract

¼ cup coarsely chopped, toasted hazelnuts


Combine cherries, dates, and water. Soak until soft, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, line a 9x5-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap or waxed paper. Drain the water off the soaked fruit. Place the fruit, hazelnut meal, cinnamon, salt, almond extract and chopped hazelnuts in a food processor. Process until well combined, about 1 minute. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. Cover with a piece of plastic wrap or waxed paper and press down to flatten to a smooth, even thickness. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Remove from pan and cut into equal-sized bars.
