These Almond Cherry Bars are a wholesome treat with just two ingredients! This recipe combines the natural sweetness and tartness of dried cherries with the crunchy, nutty flavor of almonds, creating a delightful contrast in textures and flavors. These bars are perfect for a quick, healthy snack.

  • Total Time: 6 Hours, 15 Minutes
  • Yield: 10 1x


Units Scale
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups slivered almonds
  • 1 cup dried cherries (I used dried sweetened tart cherries; see notes if you use dried sweet cherries)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. Lightly spray an 8-inch by 8-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the almond, cherries, and salt. Process or pulse on high for 30-45 seconds.
  3. Add the water and pulse again until the ingredients are well combined with no large pieces.
  4. Use a rubber spatula to transfer the mixture to the baking dish, using the spatula to smooth the top.
  5. Cover the baking dish and refrigerate the bars for 6-12 hours. Then, use a sharp knife to cut the mixture into bars.
  6. Serve chilled or at room temperature.


  1. This recipe can easily be doubled for more servings.
  2. You can use dried sweet cherries instead of dried tart cherries, if you prefer. Many brands of dried sweet cherries are unsweetened if you want to avoid added sugars.
  3. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
