Apple Pie Fruit and Nut Bars (Paleo + Whole30)

I’ve been having fun creating my own versions of my favorite Larabars and RxBars and this week’s recipe might be my favorite one yet!  These Apple Pie Fruit & Nut bars are filled with dried apples, toasted walnuts and unsweetened raisins. Yummy and both paleo and Whole30 approved with one easy subtraction!

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 cup unsweetened dried apples
  • ½ cup roasted salted cashews
  • 1 cup toasted walnuts
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened raisins
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (Omit for Whole30)
  • 1-2 tbsp water

Directions:

  • Line a 9×13 baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a food processor add walnuts and cashews and pulse until course.
  • Add the pitted dates and apples and raisins and continue to pulse until combined.
  • Add vanilla extract and cinnamon and pulse again until evenly distributed.
  • Add water and pulse until sticky
  • Place mixture in baking pan and press to flatten.
  • Transfer to fridge for at least 30 minutes to allow the bars to set.
  • Once set, use the parchment paper to help you remove the mixture from the pan.  Cut into 10 bars.
  • Store in airtight container in the fridge with parchment paper between each layer.
