Plum and Nut Slice

This idea of a "slice" is very different from the previous two examples and comes from the book Lord Brocktree. For this version, I combined fruits, nuts, and seeds in a food processor to make a thick paste that could solidify into something similar to fruit leather without all the cooking time. Sliced into squares, it makes a great chewy snack

Plum and Nut Slice

Prep time: 10 minutes
Chill time: 50 minutes
Total time: 1 hour

Yield: 9 pieces


  • 1 cup dried plums (ie prunes, preferably unsweetened)
  • 1 cup sticky dried fruit of choice (I used cherries)
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • Optional: 2 tbsp seeds, such as chia, poppy, or caraway

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor.
  2. Run the food processor for about 5-10 minutes, scraping down the sides if necessary, or until all of the ingredients have formed a smooth, shiny paste.
  3. Press the paste into an 8x8" pan lined with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and chill until solid.
  4. Cut into slices.
