Quick, easy, and really good
Place dates and raisins in saucepan with a bit of water (say, perhaps,
a little less than 1/4 cup)and cook on medium until fruit is softened.

- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1 cup sunflower seeds (toasted)

Put fruit and lemon zest in food processor and puree until thick paste.
Set aside for cooling.
After cooled a bit, scrape fruit into bowl and stir in toasted
seeds (and optional puffed grain).
Stir until evenly blended.
Press mixture into square dish and refrigerate.
Cut into squares when cool.
