Recipe by Sharon123

Pemmican was originally prepared by the North American Indians using dried, ground meat mixed with fat and dried fruits. This is a vegetarian version full of fruits, nuts, and fiber for a high energy snack!

So good & so easy! I pulsed the nuts & fruit a couple times in the food processor then added the rest as directed with a pulse or 2 between each addition. I was worried it would be over processed but it was fine. Next time I will pulse less at the beginning. The only change I made was to use double almonds & leave out the cashews. I think this would be fun reducing the nuts a bit & adding some seeds. You could use any dried fruit that makes you happy. These are so delicious! I'm gonna go have another.... Made for NA/ME Tag :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop all the fruit, nuts and ground flax seed, and mix together. Mix the dry ingredients together and add to the fruit and nut mixture, a little at a time, alternately with honey. Add just enough water(about 1/2 cup) to moisten. Press into a buttered 8" loaf pan.
  2. Bake in a 375*F. oven for 30 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack. When it's cooled, remove from pan, slice into bars.
  3. Bars can be transferred to a freezer container or bag and frozen for up to 3 months. To remove bars easily from the pan, line pan with foil and grease foil with butter. Enjoy!
  4. Makes 16.
