Line an 8-inch-square baking dish with parchment paper. In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, process 1 cup pitted Medjool dates, 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl. Add 1½ cups old-fashioned oats; 1 cup almonds, chopped; ½ cup chopped dark chocolate; ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut; and ¼ cup dried cherries.

In a small pot, warm ¼ cup honey and ¼ cup creamy salted natural peanut butter over low heat. Pour over oat mixture, mixing well. Transfer to prepared baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, about 10 minutes. Remove from pan and slice into 10 bars. Store in an airtight container up to 5 days.
