Cashew Coconut Snack Bars
Cashew and coconut is one of my favourite flavour combinations- even better in healthy and convenient snack bars! This is the perfect snack for on-the-go, busy people. Prepare them in advance and have snacks for the whole week!
- 100 g dates pitted
- 90 g cashews
- 60 g dried coconut
- 40 g oats
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp coconut oil melted
Add dates and cashews to the food processor and blitz until roughly chopped.
Add dried coconut and blitz again until combined.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add oats, chia seeds and coconut oil. Mix well (you can use your hands for this) until they are well combined.
Transfer to a lined tin or container (I use a loaf tin for this) and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Remove for the fridge and slice into 8 bars.
NOTE ON BAR CONSISTENCY: If you'd like the bar to be a more smooth consistency, you can do the entire process in the food processor. Whizz the chashews and dates first, then add in the rest of the dry ingredients. When they're nearly combined, stream in the melted coconut oil until it comes together.
SHORT ON TIME? These bars can be put in the freezer for 15 minutes instead of refrigerating.
STORAGE: Store the bars in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze for up to 3 months (just bring once out to thaw for 30 minutes before eating!).
