Banana Nut Muffin Fruit & Nut Bar

Fruit and nut bars make an awesome snack at home or on the go. This bar combines some of my favorite flavors (cinnamon & nutmeg) with the heart-and-hormone-healthy fats of cashews and almonds. Soaking your nuts (and seeds, beans and grains) helps to make them easier to digest.

 

Banana Nut Muffin Fruit & Nut Bar

Ingredients

1/2 cup cashews (soaked for 4 hours and dried if possible)

1/2 cup almonds (soaked overnight and dried if possible)

1/2 cup dates

1 banana

1 tablespoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

Hearty pinch sea salt

Optional: 1 tablespoon freshly ground flaxseed

 

Method

Add all ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth. Roll into bite-sized balls and refrigerate.

 

Note: A mini processor will work best for this. If you only have a larger food processor, double the amount of ingredients for easier blending.
