Must-Haves:

  • 2 cups organic Rolled Oats (GF version, of preferred)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (Dairy-free if preferred)

Instructions:

  1. Combine the dates, maple, chia seeds, and flax seeds into a food processor and pulse until smooth and well combined. NOTE: If too thick, add more maple syrup, 1 Tbsp at a time until consistency is met.

  2. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl along with the rolled oats, sea salt, walnuts, dried cranberries, and chocolate chips. Immediately, add mixture in bowl to the refrigerator (covered) and chill for 30 minutes.
