Prep Time: 2 hours (Inc Storage Time) Cooking Time: N/A
3/4 cup Jumbo Rolled Oats
1 1/2 Oranges
1 cup Dates
1 cup Dried Cranberries
Take your Oats and place in a mixing bowl (Jumbo Oats work best here as they absorb more liquid).
Slice the Oranges into 1/4 segments then after removing any pips squeeze over your Oats, give it all a good mix and leave to absorb for 10 minutes.
Whilst your Oats are absorbing the Orange juice add your Dates and Cranberries to a blender and give it all a good blitz together, you may need to do this in bursts and unclog the blade every 20-30 seconds.
(Alternatively use a large knife and chop up all the Dates and Cranberries into small pieces.)
Check the Oats… Are they absorbing the Orange yet?
If the mixture is still very wet simply add small amounts of the Oats.
Add your mixed Dates & Cranberries to the Oats and either using a spoon or your hands get it all combined together…..
If you notice the mix is a little dry simply add a little more squeezed Orange and keep mixing.
Place the mixture into a tupperware and compact down.
Put in the fridge for around 2 hours allowing your mixture to firm up.
Cut into 1.5 inch pieces.
