1 cup pitted dates

1 ½ cups of nut butter (no added oil/sugar)

2 cups of rolled oats

¼ cup unsweetened chopped dried cherries

3 Tbsp of unsalted pistachios

2 tsp of vanilla extract

2 tsp baking powder

Pinch of sea salt (optional)

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2 In a bowl, soak the dates in hot water (just enough to cover them) for 15 minutes.

3 Pour out about ½ the water from the dates and put the remaining water and dates in a blender. Blend until a paste forms.

4 Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined.

5 Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

6 Roll the dough into balls (about 2 tablespoons per cookie), drop on parchment paper about 2 inches apart.

7 Bake for 10-12 minutes.

8 Let cool completely (they will firm up as they cool).

9 Store in an airtight container in the freezer.
