Serving size: 1 Square
Servings per recipe: 9 squares
Prep time: 15 minutes + 1 hour refrigeration before serving
10 whole pitted dates
1/4 cup shelled pistachios
1/4 cup Macademia and cashew salted nut blend
Place the dates in a small bowl and fill with 1/2 cup warm water to soften the dates. Allow to soak for ~ 10-15 minutes. Drain the fruit and dry with towel or paper towel. While the fruit is soaking measure out the nuts and place in food processor and process until finely chopped. Place in a bowl. Once the dates are soften place them in the food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add the dates to the bowl of chopped nuts and press together with your fingers. Transfer the combined fruit and nuts to a sheet of parchment or wax paper and flatten to an evenly textured square. Refrigerate for 30-60 minutes. Remove and cut into 3 rows with 3 columns or other desired size. Tightly wrap squares individually with plastic wrap. Store squares in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
