3 cups (about 1 pound) dried apricots, roughly chopped

1 cup chopped pitted dates

1 cup shelled hempseeds

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract

Line an (8-x-8-inch) pan with parchment paper and set it aside.

Pulse all ingredients in a food processor until mixture forms a chunky paste. Transfer to prepared pan and press with a spatula to create an even thickness. Cover and chill until firm, 1 to 2 hours, and then cut into squares for serving.
