1 1/2 cups freeze dried strawberries (such as these)

1 cup soft pitted dates

3/4 cup cashews

3 tablespoons hemp seeds (optional)

1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar

1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract


Put the freeze dried strawberries in a food processor or powerful blender and process until they turn into a powder.  Add the dates, cashews, vanilla extract, and honey and process until the dates and cashews are well broken down.  If the mixture sticks together when you press it in between your thumb and fingers, it’s ready. Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls.  Alternatively, you can line a bread pan with parchment paper, press the mixture into the pan, and then cut it into bars. (Like I did with these Pumpkin Spice Energy Bars.)  Enjoy!
