1/2 C walnuts
1 C soft/fresh raisins
1 T shredded coconut
6 pitted dates, soaked for 4-12 hours
1 t vanilla
1 t cinnamon
1/4 C pecans for garnish
In a food processor with an "S" blade, process the walnuts and raisins until they are crumbly and stick together. Add in the coconut and process until combined. Press into a small tart plate (or for “bite sized” treats, use mini molds/ice cubes trays like I did) and chill.
Again using the food processor, puree the dates with a tiny bit of the soak water, cinnamon, vanilla & salt. Process, scraping sides of bowl as needed until the mixture forms a gooey paste. Spread into the crust and top with pecans.
