I chopped upward close i loving cup of pitted dates.

Now I needed something to bind it all together.  I went dorsum to the cabinet and scooped close 1/3 loving cup all natural peanut butter, 1/2 loving cup brownish rice syrup together with a splash of vanilla together with salt.  I added the dates to the syrup peanut butter mixture to rehydrate them a bit.  I warmed it inwards the microwave for close i infinitesimal together with stirred to combine.

In a large bowl I added ii cups of oats together with all the raisins together with cranberries I had on hand.
