Raw Cherry Snack Bar

Simple recipes are the best!  Being the lazy cook that I am, I don’t like to fix something that has dozens of ingredients — or ones that are not normally on my pantry shelf.

I love this Raw Cherry Snack Bar from Dr. Josh Axe.  If you are not familiar with Dr. Josh Axe, you might want to check out his website!  He list lots of great recipes, health tips, and lots of plain good sense advice.

Very Cherry Snack Bar


  • 1/4 c. dates
  • 1/4 c. dried cherries
  • 1/3 c. pecans, almonds or walnuts
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon


  1. Place dates, dried cherries and cinnamon in a food processor and blend to a paste.
  2. Set aside in a bowl.
  3. Place nuts in food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  4. Add nuts to bowl and knead together with fingers and form into bars. Store in refrigerator.


If you want some variety, you could substitute raisins, apricots, prunes or any dried fruit for the cherries — although the cherries sound really yummy!
