Hazel-Nut-Cranberry-Oat-Nuggets13 Did you know….

This was a quick creation that I threw together to take down to the job site one morning.  Because I knew everyone would be hustling and bustling, I wanted to cut them into small bite-sized nuggets, and they were a hit.  I placed the bowl on the edge of the front counter and watched the nuggets disappear as people walked by, while popping one into their mouth.   One thing that I really enjoy about this treat is that it doesn’t require dehydrating.   Enjoy my friends!

Ingredients:Hazel-Nut-Cranberry-Oat-Nuggets11

Preparation:

  1. In a food processor grind the hazel nuts, oats, coconut, cinnamon and salt until no large pieces remain.  Place in a bowl.
  2. In the same food processor bowl combine the dates, cranberries, and vanilla.   Process until  the mixture is mostly smooth.
  3. Add the dry ingredients into the food processor and process until thoroughly combined.  The batter will stick together in a large ball.
  4. Line a loaf pan or cookie sheet with plastic wrap  and press the mixture evenly into the pan.  Place in the fridge or freezer to chill.
  5. Remove and cut into small squares.  Coat with the cacao powder and enjoy!
  6. These should last a week on the counter or longer in the fridge or freezer.

Storage Tips for hazelnuts: Keep in mind… the more the nuts are processed, the shorter the shelf life they will have. It is best to process (roast, chop, slice, grind) just before use. However, if you’d like to have hazelnuts handy for your wild mid-afternoon culinary creations, freeze them in an airtight container away from foods with strong odors. They will keep for over a year in the freezer and you can remove the amount you need, bring them to room temperature and use immediately.
