Red Dragon Fruit Chips Granola Bars:
1 cup pitted dates
6 tbsp hot water (+ more for soaking the dates)
1 cup rolled oats
½ cup pumpkin seeds
1 + 1 ½ cups Suncore Foods® Red Dragon Fruit Chips
¾ cup peanut butter
¼ cup maple syrup
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
½ tsp salt
2 cups white chocolate
Equipment Needed: 8x8 or 11x7” dish
1. Date Paste — Soak dates in hot water for 15 minutes. Drain the water and transfer dates to a blender along with 6 tbsp of hot water. Blend until smooth and paste-like. Don’t remove the date paste from the blender.
2. To the same blender, add oats, pumpkin seeds, 1 cup Suncore Foods® Red Dragon Fruit Chips, peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt. Blend until sticky and coarsely ground. You may need to pause blending and scrape down the side of the blender a few times.
3. Test the mixture by pressing it between your figures: It should come together and not stick to your fingers. If the mixture is too sticky, add some more oats or Suncore Foods® Red Dragon Fruit Chips and blend again. If the mixture is too dry, add some water or plant-milk 1 tbsp at a time.
4. Line a dish with wax paper. Firmly and evenly press down the mixture into the dish.
5. Temper white chocolate and pour over the date mixture. Break the remaining Red Dragon Fruit Chips into bite size pieces and place them onto the white chocolate before the chocolate solidifies. Refrigerate for minimum 2 hours up to overnight.
