This quick snack offers a moist, juicy chew.

Make Ahead: The bars can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 day; they fare best when also individually wrapped in plastic wrap.

Tested size: 6 servings

  • 1 1/2 cups pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup raw macadamia nuts
  • 2 tablespoons old-fashioned rolled oats
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups hulled, thinly sliced fresh strawberries


Combine the dates, nuts, oats and salt in a food processor; pulse until the mixture starts to stick together. Press into a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan.

Use a potato masher or fork to mash half of the strawberries in a bowl. Spread them over the oat mixture. Arrange the remaining strawberries on top. Cut crosswise into 6 equal slices.
