  • 14 Medjool dates pitted
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews + 2 tbsp {divided}
  • 1/4 cup roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp organic peanut butter


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
