Date Cranberry Nut Bars

Truth: I would have hated these as a kid. If someone said, “want a dessert” and handed me this I would have been sad. But now, with an appreciation of nuts, seeds and dried fruit this bar is heavenly.

What you will need:

  • 3/4 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup chopped cashew
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a food processor chop the dates. Once much smaller, add the cranberries, and cashews. Chop until quite small.

Add the remaining ingredients and process until well mixed. The batter will be quite thick.

Spread the batter evenly in a greased 8×8 baking pan and bake for 25-30 min until cooked in the centre.

Cool completely before cutting.

Enjoy 🙂
