For the streusel:

For the bars:


  • Prepare the streusel topping by all of the streusel ingredients in a food processor or high-powered blender and pulse several times until chopped and crumbly. Place in a bowl and set aside.
  • Line a 8x8 or 9x9 square pan with wax paper or plastic wrap. If using plastic wrap, spray with a bit of cooking spray or a little oil.
  • Place dates, cherries, vanilla and salt in a food processor or high-powered blender, and process until the mixture forms a large mass, breaking up with a spatula if needed.
  • Press the mixture into the prepared pan. You may need to put a bit of oil on your hands or spatula, as the mixture will be sticky.
  • Sprinkle the streusel topping over the cherry layer and press down.
  • Cover the top with more wax paper or plastic wrap and press an equal sized pan to roll the top with a glass to flatten completely.
  • Freeze for 30-45 minutes, then slice into bars or squares.
  • Store in the refrigerator, or wrap individually and freeze until ready to pack to bring along with you.
