Homemade Cranberry Granola Bars

After reading the new issue of Runner's Magazine, I came across the fuel section, which highlighted 4 recipes for homemade granola bars. I've been wanting to make my own for a while and therefore I chose to make the simplest recipe.

These bars have only four basic ingredients (dried cranberries, roasted nuts, dates, and unsweetened shredded coconut). I used a variety of nuts since I love a mix. I used what I had on hand in my pantry---walnuts, almonds, pecans, and toasted pumpkin seeds. 

About 1 cup of each basic ingredient and pulse in a food processor. Next, add one or two tablespoons of water to the mixture and pulse again. Transfer to a baking dish. Press with the back of a spoon to flatten and refrigerate for up to an hour. 

Makes 16 Bars.
