6 medjool dates, pitted
1/3 cup gluten free rolled oats
1/4 cup pepitas
1 tablespoon flax seed meal
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon water
Pinch of kosher salt
Method of Preparation:
In a food processor pulse the dates until they form a paste and ball up on the blade.
Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until thoroughly combined. The mixture should pack together in your fingers when it is ready (if too crumbly, add another teaspoon of water until it packs together).
