Coconut Cashew Bars


I love finding delicious, easy, and nutritious snacks to have on hand in the fridge and/or freezer! These tasty treats are easy to prepare and store well in the fridge or freezer. They are the perfect snack to grab before and/or after workouts, for the busy woman on the go, and to pack for healthy camping/hiking/biking!

I found this great recipe on ToneItUp.com and made a few modifications. Enjoy!!

Coconut Cashew Bars
Makes 12 bars



1 cup of cashews
½ cup of coconut flakes or shavings (unsweetened)
1 cup of dates (I use regular dates and soak for five minutes)
2 tbsp of lime zest
2 tbsp lime juice
pinch of sea salt
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
[optional] sprinkle of hemp hearts for garnish

Add all ingredients to the food processor and pulse a few times to create a dough. Next, press mixture into a parchment lined pan. Sprinkled hemp hearts on top, if desired. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and cut into bars. Keep these individually wrapped or covered in the fridge for up to five days or in the freezer for longer.
