RAWSOME Energy Snacks


1 cup Inari Organic Medjool Dates

1/2 cup chopped Inari Organic Cranberries

3/4 cup Inari Organic Nuts (i.e. raw cashews, almonds, walnuts)

1 tbsp Inari Organic Raw Cacao Powder

1/4 cup NOW® Organic Rawsome Whole Food Meal

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp lemon juice

Pinch of Celtic sea salt



Pit the dates, place in a bowl and soak them in water for 1 hour.  Turn the dates into a paste by using a knife and cutting in to small pieces. Do not do it in a blender or food processor, the dates will stick to the knifes. Place the nuts in a food processor. Process them but don’t blend to a powder. The bars taste better with tiny pieces of nuts in them.  Add the nuts, sour cherries, cocoa powder, Rawsome, vanilla and lemon juice to the dates and mix. This is easiest with your hands. Mix until fully combined.  Take the dough and make 2 long “rolls”. Then flatten the top and edges with a wooden spoon. Cut each “roll” into 3-4 pieces.  Wrap each piece with parchment paper or plastic wrap.

Store them in the fridge until ready to eat.

Yields about 6 bars
