Ingredients

  • 1 box Erewhon Rice Twice cereal
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2-3 Tablespoons water
  • 1 cup dates, diced
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup crushed walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon course sea salt(optional)


Instructions

In a food processor, blend the cereal until it makes a fine flour. Add the melted butter, powdered sugar, almond butter, and cinnamon and continue blending until mixed. Slowly add the water until the cereal mix starts sticking to itself. Shut off the processor and move it into an 8 by 8 baking pan and press into an even layer. Refrigerate for the time being.

In a small pot, bring the dates, brown sugar, and water to a boil. Continue boiling until the dates are soft and mushy and the water has evaporated. Remove from the heat and mash together into a somewhat smooth puree. Spread the date mixture over the crust in an even layer. Top with walnuts and sea salt if using.

Chill for at least one hour before cutting into squares.
