  1. 22-25 Mejdool dates
  2. 1 cup of jumbo oats
  3. 1/3 cup pecans
  4. 1/3 cup walnuts
  5. 1/3 cup almonds
  6. 2 tbspns watermelon seeds
  7. 2 tbspns sunflower seeds
  8. 1 tbspn organic honey
  9. 1 ½ tspn fennel seeds
  10. 1 tspn salt
  11. 1 tsp of extra virgin olive oil (optional)

 

  • Roast the fennel seeds and then the nuts in a pan, and place them in a blender to blend them into a not-so-fine powder
  • Next, blend the oats and fennel into a fine powder. You can blend oats and fennel seeds together.
  • If the dates are bit tough, then soak them in warm water for about 10 minutes and then de-seed them. Blend the deseeded dates in a processor till an almost fine paste.
  • Now start combining the processed nuts, oats, fennel, dates, and the watermelon seeds and sunflower seeds and honey (and oil, if you are using).
  • After everything is well combined, flatten the mixture out and cut into shapes.
  • The mixture is a little sticky, so you may want to line your plate with a grease-proof paper.
  • Have them immediately and/or store them in the fridge. They keep well for little more than a week.
