Chocolate Cashew Energy Bar

chocolate energy bar (2)These were a hit at my house! Super easy to make and a healthy and cheaper alternative to store bought bars. I found this recipe on superhealthykids.com. The only suggestion I have is to make a double the recipe.

I like using dates because they are packed with fiber, iron and potassium and adds the right amount of sweetness to feel like a treat. Give them a try and let me know what you think!

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups pitted dates
  • 3/4 cup cashews
  • 1/4 almond butter
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch of salt

Toss everything into a food processor until it clumps together in a ball. Press into a 8×8 dish lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Remove and cut into bars.
