2 cups assorted raw nuts, pre-soaked (I used: cashews, almonds, and candied*walnuts)
1/2 cup assorted dried fruit (I used cranberries and raisins)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tablespoon agave nectar, optional (helps for binding)


1. In a food processor, pulse nuts down until they form a meal (not a powdery meal, but you want them to get ground to the size of little bulgur grains).

2. Stir in dried fruit, pulse more. Stir in oats and agave, and pulse more. Shape into whatever; however.

3. If you want it warm and doughy, then dehydrate for an hour. if you want it like it is, don't dehydrate; this step is optional.

* 'candied' walnuts: raw walnuts mixed with agave and cinnamon

other great fruits to consider (dried):

-goji berries

Makes: anywhere from 10-12 bars or 12-24 balls., Preparation time: 15 minutes or less, Cooking time: 1 hr on dehydrator
