Goldenberry Pistachio Bars

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 8 bars


2/3 cup organic Medjool dates (about 6-7 large), pitted

2/3 cup raw organic almonds

2 tablespoons chia seeds

1 teaspoon freshly squeezed organic lemon juice, or more as needed

2/3 cup unsalted shelled pistachios

2/3 cup dried goldenberries


1. In a food processor, combine the dates, almonds, chia seeds and lemon juice until it forms a thick dough.

2. Add the pistachios and goldenberries and process until the mixture sticks together but is still chunky.

3. If dough is too dry add 1 teaspoon lemon juice at a time until dough sticks together.

4. Place dough on large sheet of plastic wrap and press into a compact square.

5. Tightly wrap in the plastic and condense it further into a 6-inch square.

6. Unwrap the dough and cut it into bars or bites.

*Bars will last several weeks unrefrigerated and covered or store in freezer for longer-term use.*
