Ingredients
  1. 1 cup unsulphured raisins
  2. 1/4 teaspoon warm water, if necessary
  3. 3/4 cup rolled oats (gluten free and not quick or instant)
  4. 3/4 cup raw cashews or pecans
  5. ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  6. 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  7. 1/8 teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Place the raisins and water in a food processor and pulse until they are processed to a paste. Place the raisin paste in a medium bowl.
  2. In the same food processor, add the cashews and oats and process until very finely chopped.
  3. Add the cashew, almond mixture, along with the cinnamon, vanilla and sea salt to the bowl with the raisin paste. Using your fingers, knead the ingredients together until you have a solid combined ball.
  4. Lay a piece of plastic wrap on the counter and transfer the ball to the plastic wrap and press down to start to flatten into a rectangle. Fold the excess plastic over the top and use your hands to shape and flatten the mixture until it is about 1/2“ thick, about 9” across and 3” down. OR make whatever shape you want.
  5. Refrigerate for a couple hours until firm and slice as desired. Keep wrapped in the refrigerator. You can use parchment paper if you would like.
