Ingredients

1-2 cups dried mulberries

2 cups dried figs

2 cups pitted dates

1-2 teaspoons freshly ground cinnamon

Directions

Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the mixture reaches a cookie dough consistency.

Cover a pyrex with cooking paper and place the mixture on top, spreading it so that it takes the form of the pyrex. Slice the mixture into bar chunks to make energy bars.

Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes so that they harden.

OPTIONAL ADD-ON: Blend 2 cups of pitted cherries and 1 cup of pitted dates until smooth. Drizzle over the energy bars for added sweetness.
