Raw Fruit and Nut Bar – lunch-box treat
These bars are so yummy and born out of checking the packaging of a 35g Nakd bar to discover how few the ingredients were and so easily whizzed up in the Thermie! Great, quick lunch-box snack!
Whizz up for 20 seconds / speed 9:
- Zest of half an orange
- 1 tsp cornflour
Whizz up for 20 seconds / speed 9 – scrape down – then repeat for another 10 seconds / speed 9:
- 140g cashews (for a nut-free version, try pumpkin or sunflower seeds)
NB: the mix should almost be at the cashew butter stage
Add and whizz 30 seconds / speed 9:
- 140g dates
- 50g raisins
Add in and blend 10 seconds / speed 9:
- grated Orange zest
- 20g cacao (cocoa) powder
If you pick up a blob of the mix and squeeze in the palm of your hand, it should form together well. Tip the mixture into a small tin, lined with baking paper if you wish, and press down with your hands. Then take a small jam jar and roll to make a smooth dough. I then score ‘bars’ measuring about 1.5cm x 10-12 cm. Make them larger or smaller, as you wish.
Pop into the fridge to harden, then cut up.
Ready to eat or to pop into a lunch-box!
