Makes 8 bars

Food bars are a great option when you’re on-the-go, but they can be pricey. Save some dough by making these at home and keep ’em on hand for days when you need a quick snack.

2 1/2 cups raw almonds

1/3 cup dried sour cherries

1 cup dates, pits removed and chopped

1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

1 tsp. vanilla extract

3/4 tsp. sea salt

juice of 1/2 lemon, seeds removed

Pulse all ingredients in food processor or high-speed blender until pulverized. Scoop mixture into 9×9-inch square baking dish, using spatula to press into dish and spread evenly. Refrigerate 1 hour, and cut into squares. Store bars in refrigerator.
