One thing to note with this recipe is that sunbutter is over powering- so be sure you like the flavor before mixing this one. You can use smooth almond butter or another nut-butter instead.
The consistency of these are bit different than the Coconut & Nut Balls from a previous post because they don't contain oil other than the palm oil in the sunbutter.
Cranberry & Sunbutter Bars
1 cup raw pecans
1/2 cup coconut flakes (organic and unsweetened)
1/4 cocoa powder (organic no other additives)
20 pitted dates
3/4 cup dried unsweetened cranberries
1/3 cup sunbutter
2 tbls honey
Blend pecans, coconut flakes, cocoa powder in a small blender. In larger blender mix the dates, cranberries and sunbutter. Add the pecan blend to the larger blender and mix. Add in the honey. You may need to stir intermittently with a knife to mix things around a bit.
You can roll them into balls or make bars (suppose you could make them any shape ;)) I wrap then individually in cellophane so they don't dry out. They are best kept in the refrigerator.
Yields 7-8 bars.
