Serves: 8-10
Ingredients
  • 1-1/3 cups pitted medjool dates
  • 1 cup salted cashews
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup chocolate chunks
Instructions
  1. Place all the ingredients into food processor or high powered blender.
  2. Blend until solid and slightly sticky. It will become a large lump with most of it stuck together.
  3. Remove lump and press any loose pieces into it and place on a sheet of wax paper.
  4. Place another piece of wax paper on top of the lump and do your best to flatten and form into a square or rectangle.
  5. Place in a fridge for a few hours to make it easier to cut.
  6. Cut into squares or rectangles and store in fridge in between sheets of wax or parchment paper, or you can wrap each one individually in wax paper for putting in lunches or for on the go. You can use a cute sticker to seal them for kids lunches!

 

This has been one of my favorite flavors to date but it does have added sugar from the chocolate chunks. My kids loved them too, and they are a much better alternative to store-bought bars.

    Yum! These sound delicious! I started making raw energy bars with dates about a year ago and my family loves them! My hubby who bikes 70+ miles three times a week says he can get such clean, long lasting energy from any commercial energy product :-) And I love putting them in my girls lunchboxes knowing they are getting a sweet snack that isn’t sabotaging their health. I can’t wait to try these! Thanks for sharing :-)
