Prep time: 15 minutes + 1 hour refrigeration before serving
18 pitted dates
3/4 cup pumpkin seeds
Place the dates in a small bowl and cover with warm water to soften the dates. Allow to soak for ~ 10-15 minutes. Drain the dates and dry gently with towel or paper towel. While the date is soaking measure out the pumpkin seeds 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 pumpkin seeds and press together with your fingers. Transfer the combined dates and pumpkin seeds to a sheet of parchment or wax paper and flatten to an evenly textured square. Refrigerate for 30-60 minutes. Remove and cut into 5 rows with 5 columns or other desired size. Tightly wrap squares individually with plastic wrap. Store squares in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
