Fruit and Nut Bars

1 cup walnuts
1 cup soft Medjool dates
1 cup dried cherries
1 t. vanilla extract
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/8 t. salt

In a food processor, grind walnuts into tiny pieces. Do not over-process. Set aside the ground walnuts to another bowl.
Add the dates and cherries to the food processor. Process until they become a sticky paste. If your dates are not soft, you may need to add a tablespoon of warm water. Add back in the walnuts, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt and process a couple of pulses until everything is combined well.

Transfer the mixture to a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Spread the mixture onto the parchment paper with a silicone spatula or by covering it with a piece of waxed paper and using a rolling pin to spread it to 1/2-inch thick. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes. Remove and cut into 10 rectangles. Store each bar in plastic wrap and keep refrigerated.
