Homemade Chewy Health Bars

Thanks Cassie for the recipe!

Fruit and Nuts Chewy Bars:

1/3 cup each of chopped almonds and pecans
1/2 cup honey
3/4 Medjool dates, pitted
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup each dried cranberries and chopped dried apples
2 1/2 cups of regular rolled oats, I used flax seed meal instead (it worked out great)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spread nuts on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until golden brown.
~~ I got annoyed with this process and broiled it. Watch it though because the Pecans will burn easily.
Warm honey in a microwave until the consistency of thin syrup. In a food processor, pulse honey, dates,
cinnamon,nuts, and oats (or whatever).

Scrape mixture into a medium bowl. Break up any clumps of dates and, if needed, chop any large date chunks.
Stir in nuts, cranberries, and apples. Squeeze mixture into a ball. Line baking sheets with foil and oil it.Using damp
hands, firmly pat mixture into foil into a compact 6-by 12-in. rectangle.

Freeze until rectangle is firm enough to cut, about 20 minutes. Lift rectangle from foil to a work surface and cut into 16 bars.
Wrap bars individually. They get moister and chewier after standing at least a day.
