  • 3 Tbsp. dried cranberries
  • 1 Tbsp. pumpkin seeds


  • In a stand mixer or food processor, combine all ingredients except for cranberries and pumpkin seeds. Mix until dough forms into a large ball; it should stick together but not be sticky. Fold in cranberries and pumpkin seeds.

  • Wrap individually, if desired. Store in refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
