A cashew cookie dough homemade lara bar. It's vegan and paleo friendly with no artificial/refined sweetener.
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup almond meal
  • ½ cup raw cashews (boiled for 20 minutes and then drained)
  • ½ cup roasted hazelnuts
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 4-5 dates
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
Instructions
  1. Boil the cashews in water for 20 minutes and then drain the water.
  2. In a food processor, add the roasted hazelnuts and process them until they are fine like the almond meal. Pour them out into a bowl. Add the dates and process them until they're smooth. Add the almond meal, cashews, hazelnuts, salt, coconut oil, and nut butter. Blend until everything is smooth and evenly mixed. You may need to use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides several times.
  3. Add the chocolate chips and process it for several seconds.
  4. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper. Scrape the Lara Bar mixture into the baking pan. Spread it onto the pan and try to flatten it as evenly as possible.
  5. Place it in the fridge for several hours.
  6. Remove it from the fridge. Use the parchment paper to lift it out of the pan. Slice them into bars and then enjoy!
