Prep Time 15minutes
Cook Time 20minutes
Total Time 35minutes
2cupsNatural Delights organic medjool dates
Soak the medjool dates for 10 minutes before putting them in a food processor and blending it until it's a bit of a paste consistency (add water if needed)
Heat the oven to 350F.
On the stove on low heat, warm up your peanut butter and honey and stir until combined.
Add in your oats (I used Bob's Red Mill), dates, cranberries, and sunflower seeds and mix them together.
After everything is mixed together, place it in a pan (lined with parchment paper) and press down firmly until uniformly flattened (I used a loaf pan so they came out thicker. Use a bigger pan if you'd like it to be thinner), and bake for 15-20 minutes.
Once the bars have cooled down, remove bars from pan and cut into your desired size for the bars. I put it in the fridge to chill a bit before cutting so the peanut butter can set more.
