  • 2 cup dates, pitted
  • 3/4 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter, all-natural
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  • Toss everything into a food processor and process until the mixture starts to go smooth and clump into a ball. The dates will be all chopped up but you'll still have bits of nut.
  • Turn the mixture out into an 8 or 9 inch square dish lined with parchment paper. Use your hands to firmly press the mixture into the bottom of the dish. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the bars from the pan and cut into pieces using a sharp knife. Enjoy these bars cold or frozen. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge or freezer.
  • I think a high power blender could be used to make these, but I haven't tried it myself.
  • This recipe was adapted and inspired by Almond Joy Bars from One Lovely Life
