'I find myself making this recipe when my body craves protein after a long hike or hard workout at the gym. I like the mixture of chunky rich nuts and seeds blended with sweet dates. It's perfect for breakfast on the go!' -Doug McNish, author of Raw, Quick & Delicious

Ingredients Makes 1 serving

1⁄4 cup whole raw almonds 60 mL
1⁄4 cup whole raw cashews 60 mL
2 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds 30 mL
1 tbsp raw sunflower seeds 15 mL
1⁄4 cup chopped pitted dates 60 mL
1⁄2 cup filtered water 125 mL


  1. In a food processor fitted with the metal blade, process almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds until roughly chopped. Add dates and pulse 8 to 10 times, until combined.
  2. Transfer to a serving bowl and add water. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
If you want to make this ahead and keep it on hand for a quick, nutritious breakfast, omit the water and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Add 1⁄2 cup filtered water before serving. Almonds are very nutritious. They include phytochemicals, protein, fiber and healthy fats, as well as vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, manganese and a small amount of B vitamins.
