Recipe type: Snack
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 14 Medjool dates, pitted
  • ½ cup raw cashews + 2 tbsp {divided}
  • ¼ cup roasted unsalted peanuts
  • ¼ cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp organic peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients {with exception of 2 tbsp cashews} to bowl of food processor, blend for one minute - scrap down sides if needed and blend for additional 20 seconds.
  2. Line 8x8 square dish with plastic wrap, remove mixture from food processor bowl and smooth into even layer. The mixture will be thick - I found washing my hands, them getting them slightly wet and using them to press down and spread the mixture out was the easiest. Then use a slightly damp spatula to create a smooth finish.
  3. Chop remaining 2 tbsp cashews, then sprinkle across the bars. Place another piece of plastic wrap over the bars and press the cashew pieces down into the bars.
  4. Refrigerate 15-20 minutes, then remove plastic and bars from 8x8 pan and cut into 12 even bars. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to one week.
